Antigone, in Her Unbearable Splendor: New Essays on Jacques by Charles Freeland

By Charles Freeland

A research of Lacan’s engagement with the Western philosophical traditions of moral and political suggestion in his 7th seminar and later work.

With its privileging of the subconscious, Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic proposal would appear to be at odds with the ambitions and techniques of philosophy. Lacan himself embraced the time period “anti-philosophy” in characterizing his paintings, and but his seminars undeniably evince wealthy engagement with the Western philosophical culture. those essays discover how Lacan’s paintings demanding situations and builds in this culture of moral and political idea, connecting his “ethics of psychoanalysis” to either the classical Greek culture of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and to the Enlightenment culture of Kant, Hegel, and de Sade. Charles Freeland exhibits how Lacan significantly addressed many of the key moral issues of these traditions: the pursuit of fact and the moral strong, the beliefs of self-knowledge and the care of the soul, and the relation of ethical legislations to the tragic dimensions of loss of life and wish. instead of maintaining the characterization of Lacan’s paintings as “anti-philosophical,” those essays determine a resonance in a position to enriching philosophy by means of commencing it to wider and evermore tough perspectives.

“Freeland’s analyzing of Lacan is fantastically philosophical not just simply because he examines the psychoanalyst’s accounts to philosophical discourse, yet, extra forcefully, simply because his personal technique isn't indebted to any of the presently dominant developments in psychoanalytic thought. This publication is as singular because it is insightful.” — Steven Miller, collage at Buffalo, kingdom college of recent York
