“The object a is defined here as condensed or materialized jouissance with which the subject identifies itself as an object that causes its own desire.” – If one thinks of the petit a as a positivization of the negativity of loss—a retrieval of a wisp—one may speak of the enjoyment of meaning or jouis-sens wherein ego becomes an object reducible to the death drive.
