Sample text

There's no longer any mediation but that of violence. Such is desire's lot in Hegel. Second Formula d(a) < i(a): d(/A) In the Lacanian, or analytic, sense desire for desire is desire of the Other in a way that is, in its principle, far more open to a kind of mediation. At least, so it seems on first approach. Notice that the formula I've put up on the blackboard goes a long way to wrong-foot what you might expect. I have in fact written the relation to the desire of the Other, d(/A), with the image-support of this desire that I unhesitatingly write i( a), precisely because of the ambiguity that this creates with the notation i(m) with which I usually designate the specular image.

This is where the image i' (a) gets its prestige from. But the more man approaches, encircles and caresses what he believes to be the object of his desire, the more he is in fact diverted and distracted from it. Everything he does on this path to move closer to it gives ever more body to what, in the object of this desire, represents the specular image. The further he goes, the more he wants, in the object of his desire, to preserve, maintain and protect the face of this primordial vase that is intact - the specular image.

2 Let’ s take anxiety in its a minima definition as a signal. Despite having been imparted by Freud at the end of the progress of his thought, this definition is not what people think it is. Beyond Castration Anxiety 47 It results neither from a relinquishment of his initial positions, which saw it as the result of a metabolism of energy, nor from a new conquest, because back when Freud saw anxiety as the transformation of libido he was already indicating that it could function as a signal. It would be easy for me to show you this in passing by referring to the text, but I ’ ve got too much to bring up with you this year to dwell too long at the level of textual explanations.
