The cultural demands and requirements that are carried
by the symbolic order impose constraints on the satisfaction of
biological needs, which open the being to something beyond the pleasure
What can the psychoanalytic cure offer to the human
subject who is in the grasp of a desire that transcends these demands
and requirements but who remains captive to language?
The Effraction That Constitutes the Human -
practice, the signifier reveals itself as lacking with respect to
what remains out of language and beyond the limits of pleasure,
and thus reveals the defect in language. The effraction that constitutes
the human, and that opens, in the being, a beyond of the limits
of pleasure, introduces the being to the possibility of an aesthetic
that defines the lack that subjects the being to a desire. The lack
around which the subject is constituted is not foreign to this heterogeneity
that renders the signifier incompatible with jouissance.
The Structure of the Address -
collective reproduces, ideologically, its values, its norms, and
its prohibitions, by defining what is receivable and what is unspeakable.
The relationship of companionship between members of the collective
pass through the structure of the address where the Other is the
guardian of both the receivable and of the cultural montage
of the sexual. Speech, therefore, becomes a risk for the subject
of the unconscious.
The Psychic Structures -
Psychosis, Neurosis and Perversion
with Freud, the psychic structures are logically determined with
respect to the relationship of the subject to the signifier of the
Father. The clinic of repression in neurosis, of denial in perversion,
as well as of foreclosure in psychosis, have reinforced the accuracy
of Freudís first intuition. But in the context of mondialisation,
which is where we will live from now on, these psychic structures
and their clinics must be reexamined in the light of the stakes
and challenges of a situation where the return of what is out of
language calls into question the limits of the receivable.
