“the unseen analyst whose desire remains an enigma [allows that]..the subject reclaims some greater portion of his or her own desire.” – RICHARD BOOTHBY on the Real-gaze, the the modus of accepting that we cannot fill with fantasy what we cannot know. In analysis we reclaim access to our desire when we allow lack, when we allow the fact that our fantasy about what others are to us is only a fill-in for the blindspot, for the unknowability of the Other. Not knowing the Other is what sets desire into motion. Thus relying less on fantasy and allowing this notknowing, makes us relearn desire in analysis. http://ift.tt/1DxlYeY
