The truth is not in one dream, but in many dreams. The "Dreams" seminar is interested in dream life, and in what affects us by simultaneously affecting our relationship to the world.

The starting point of the research is in the expressions of traveling theories which, where a conceptual chain was lacking (exiles, wars, and displacements, situations of subalternization in life, law, and the language, separations), is written in a cartography of narratives where statements and utterances can not be disjointed. These narratives are the concrete syntagms resulting from the…
