“There is perhaps no more dangerous mixture for a political movement than that of being at once horrified by history and divinely inspired.” – JACQUELINE ROSE http://ift.tt/1GvpyXE


Lacan reads the three types of identification posited by Freud in terms of the gradual intrusion of the axis of desire on to the axis of identification: (a) privation (demand directed to a lost object); (b) frustration (demand which cannot be given its object); (c) castration (demand for which there is no object). … In each case the subject is directed outwards to an external object, and it is the relationship of this demand to the place of the object that becomes the basis for identification.
