“No one wants to be cured of ..symptoms because the death drive—translated here as jouissance—lies ..on the side of the real impasses that organize our lives” – Ellie Ragland
“Humans yearn for the Real, ..nevber finding it.. ..The death drive becomes an excessive attachment to that surplus which cannot be accomodated within the symbolic ..existence” – Sean Sheehan
“Death drive constitutes ..the inhuman tension that dwells within the human.” – Death drive constitutes ..a self-destructive freedom.
