You need to have read this collection, and read it in its entirety, to feel that it is the same debate that, even if it seems outdated, is recognized as the debate of the Enlightenment.
For there is one area in which the dawn itself is tardy: that which passes through the prejudice that psychopathology does not get rid of and reaches the deceptive obviousness with which the Self entitles itself by flaunting its existence.
Darkness is similar to an object there and thrives on the obscurity in which it finds its values.
Not surprising then is the resistance to the Freudian discovery, a term here extended with an amphibology: Jacques Lacan's discovery of Freud.
The reader will learn what is revealed in it: the unconscious obeys pure logic, in other words the signifier.
Epistemology will always miss it if it does not begin with a reform that is a subversion of the subject.
Its emergence cannot happen except in reality and in the very place that psychoanalysts occupy at that moment.
It was precisely to record this subversion drawn from their most everyday experience that Jacques Lacan worked for them for fifteen years.
The issue is too important to everyone not to make a fuss.
And precisely in order not to be diverted from the cultural trade, Jacques Lacan calls for attention in these texts.
