Need, Demand, Desire -
The Real, the Symbolic and the Imaginary
The Other, the Law and the Phallus -
is in the Other that the subject finds the law that rules its desire.
This, at least, is what psychoanalysis has in store for anyone who
questions the place and the meaning of the phallus between the subjectís
lack and the Otherís desire.
Jouissance, the Signifier and Lack -
practice, the signifier proves ineffective against jouissance. The
lack around which the subject is constituted is not foreign to this
heterogeneity that renders the signifier incompatible with jouissance.
The Question of the Father -
and the Psychic Structures
Psychosis, Neurosis and Perversion
to Freud, psychic structures are logically based on the relation
of the subject to the signifier of the Father. Present clinical
practice dealing with repression, denial and foreclosure reinforces
Freudís original intuition.
