“Alienation is “overcome” when the subject experiences that “there is no big Other,” that its status is that of a semblance, its character inconsistent and antagonistic. This, however, does not mean that the subject re-appropriates the big Other: rather, the subject’s lack with regard to the Other is transposed into the big Other itself.
…this overlapping of my lack with the lack in the Other itself, does not cancel the lack – on the contrary” – SLAVOJ ZIZEK http://ift.tt/1MZXEf7
