Jacques Lacan

French psychiatrist
For the signifier is a unit in its very uniqueness, being by nature symbol only of an absence.More Jacques Lacan quotes [07/29/2011 03:07:08]
The unconscious is structured like a language.More Jacques Lacan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
...Desire, a function central to all human experience, is the desire for nothing nameable. And at the same time this desire lies at the origin of every variety of animation. If being were only what it is, there wouldn’t even be room to talk about it. Being comes into existence as an exact function of this lack.More Jacques Lacan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I identify myself in language, but only by losing myself in it like an object. What is realised in my history is not the past definite of what was, since it is no more, or even the present perfect of what has been in what I am, but the future anterior of what I shall have been for what I am in the process of becoming.More Jacques Lacan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As is known, it is in the realm of experience inaugurated by psychoanalysis that we may grasp along what imaginary lines the human organism, in the most intimate recesses of its being, manifests its capture in a symbolic dimension.More Jacques Lacan quotes [07/29/2011 03:07:46]
