“humanity will be cured of psychoanalysis. By ..repressing this symptom. ..Religion is made … to cure people, that is to say, to make sure that they do not note what doesn’t go smoothly.” – JACQUES LACAN on the symptom and the function of the psychoanalyst as someone who encourages us not to repress the symptom (via jacques—lacan) http://ift.tt/19cln9R
