On the eve of the opening of the PIPOL Congress, Ombilic releases its last issue. Week after week, Ombilic relayed no less than a hundred contributions in all four languages of the EuroFederation and this, in a joyful atmosphere that characterises its terrific team! Once more, this has been the occasion to note, to which point the concepts elaborated by Freud and Lacan and then brought to light by J.-A. Miller, form unrivalled compasses to enlighten questions that agitate our society.
We wish you a good Congress!

“Someone here once wrote an article entitled, if memory serves me well, ‘Un désir d’enfant.’ This article was entirely constructed around the ambiguity of the expression désir d’enfant, for it can mean either that the child is the one who desires or that someone desires to have a child.”
Lacan J., The Seminar, Book VIII, Transference, Polity Press, Cambridge UK, 2015. p. 119.
