“Being partially exiled from the social order dominated by men, the feminine subject ..seeks to fit in, ..tries to express herself in language ..and looks for love. ..She is hyper-articulate because she is fixated on the symbolic order that partially excludes her.” – TURNING LAW INSIDE OUT – JEANNE SCHROEDER

“a psychotic ..lacks ..the unconscious background which gives the words we use their libidinal resonance, their specific subjective weight and color.” – Without this background, psychoanalytic interpretation is powerless, inoperative


“Alexandre Leupin describes this surplus in language or in the body as the quality of meaning Lacan called the jouissance” – ELLIE RAGLAND
