Eros and Ethics: Reading Jacques Lacan’s Seminar VII

In Eros and Ethics, Marc De Kesel patiently exposes the strains of notion underlying Jacques Lacan’s frequently advanced and cryptic reasoning concerning ethics and morality in his 7th seminar, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis (1959–1960). during this seminar, Lacan arrives at a slightly complicated end: that which, over the a while, has been speculated to be “the splendid solid” is actually not anything yet “radical evil”; for this reason, the final word aim of human hope isn't really happiness and self-realization, yet destruction and dying.

They drive the dark Thruway on until a sign for ‘Exit 21: Catskill/Gay Paris/Cairo’ looms loveless and plain in the headlights, an air of extraordinary permanence about its pose, like it wants you to think it’s been here since before the trees. And you better believe it’ll be leaning just the same when there’s nobody left to ride these broken yellow lines home to nowhere.

So when I told him I finally got the audition it was too much for him I think. The bat he hit me with still had the price tag on it.

They got their cake from day one and when they can’t eat it too they snap. ’ Guess I shoulda listened to her.
