MARANHAO, Bernardo Costa Couto de Albuquerque  and  ROCHA, Guilherme Massara. Affect, knowledge, virtue: the affects in Lacan and the "gai savoir". Estud. psicanal. [online]. 2021, n.55, pp. 171-180. ISSN 0100-3437.

In this article, we discuss Lacan's approach on the issue of affects in a sketch of his work "Télévision" (1974). In order to address this matter, the main references we have chosen are Colette Soler's elaborations in her book "Les affects lacaniens" (2011) and Jacques-Alain Miller's consideration in his article "Les affects dans l'expérience analytique" (1986). Our démarche comprises three steps: a brief review of the Freudian fundaments that Lacan himself claims for his own theory of affects; a discussion of the hypothesis formulated by Lacan in his seminar Encore, concerning the relationship between affect, body and language; a closer reading on the sketch of Lacan's "Télévision" in which the author evokes the gai savoir in opposition to sadness and under the triple status of knowledge, virtue and affect.

Keywords : Affect; Enjoyment; Lalangue; Parlêtre; Gai savoir; Analytic intepretation.
