“When Lacan defines the object of desire as lost, his point is not simply that we never know what we desire and are condemned to the eternal search for the true object, Lacan’s point is a much more radical one. The lost object is ultimately the subject itself.” – The subject as an object implies that the question of desire…is …“what do others want…, what object…do they see in me?” …Lacan defines the subject as that which is not an object. The point being that the impossibility to identify yourself as an object, to know what you are for others, is constitutive of the subject. …Pathological subjective positions [are] answers to the hysterical question. – Slavoj Zizek http://ift.tt/1ERtqb4 http://ift.tt/1OuR0up
