Introduction to Tokyo Discourse:

This intervention by Dr Lacan took place on April 21, 1971 in Tokyo in the office of Kobundo editions, the publisher of the Japanese translation of the Écrits, during a meeting organized by Prof. Takasugo Sasaki, with the team of translators who had gathered around him to work on Écrits. The transcription of this intervention by Dr Lacan was established, beginning with a now lost recording made by Mr Philippe Pons, Tokyo correspondent for the newspaper Le Monde. It is thanks to Prof. Sasaki who preserved this transcription that this document has come to us. This text was translated into Japanese by Prof. Sasaki, who had it published under the title “Tokyo Discourse,” along with Mr Takuhiko Ichimura’s translation of “Radiophonie,” in a book published by Kobundo in 1985, entitled ‘Discourse of Jacques Lacan’.
