Book Ý The Lacanian Subject Å Bruce Fink

Nconsciente estruturado como linguagem alienação e separação metáfora paterna e diferença sexua The Lacanian Subject is excellent Fink is a stupendous reader of Lacan and a clear explicator of Lacan's most difficult and confounding ideas What this text offers primarily is a helpful gloss on much of what Lacan says about subjectivity This text is not a comprehensive reading of all of Lacan's work nor does it attempt to accomplish such an impossible task The partiality both in the sense of incompleteness and in the sense of Fink's personal investments in reading Lacan a certain way of this text is one of its strength but must be taken into account The text is imperfect both because of Fink's reading of Lacan in certain moments particularly in regard to the Real and because of Lacan's own formulations particularly in regard to so called sexual difference of sexuation Imperfections and contradictions taken into account though The Lacanian Subject remains both a pleasure to read and essential for most contemporary students of LacanWith praise sufficiently lavished most of my review will actually account for the text's problems though perhaps they are my own problems as a relative newcomer to Lacan Still they are worth noting for those approaching this text for the first time or coming away from having read it for the first time As I have alluded Fink's reading of the Real falls somewhere between insufficient and unhelpful Fink defines the Real as that which has not yet been symbolized remained to be symbolized or even resists symbolization 25 This definition should be immediately suspect at even the most cursory glance as resisting symbolization and yet to be symbolized have a near contradictory tension between them Lacan might suggest we simply hold that contradiction in view but the rendering of the Real as yet to be symbolized is an unsatisfying reading of Lacan One might attribute this issue to the earliness of this text in terms of Fink's output A colleague of mine suggested that Fink drew from early Lacan The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis in particular for this text thus producing such a schematic understanding of the Real But let me be clear the Real is not some kind of juggling act where that which is unsymbolized comes to be symbolized through analysis but the remainder propagates the Real in eual measure to that which is symbolized as Fink claims The Real remains a traumatic core of experience but never of the experience of any given subject The Real and its connection to jouissance means that any encounter with the Real never happens to the subject That is to say the so called person who might have an encounter with the Real perhaps in the form of sexual jouissance would not be the subject Subjectivity and the Real are mutually exclusive and indeed an encounter with the Real would never accrue to the subject but only exist as a possible source of traumaA helpful explication Fink authors to pick one out in particular is his analysis of the phallus the mOther's desire the child and the name of the father on pages 54 57 The psychoanalytic categories Fink provides accounts of make clear the arbitrariness of these familiar titles Fink fills these signifiers with the meaning of psychoanalytic structure rather than the detritus of family relation His reading of Lacan here is most convincing This same line of argument the name of the father has nothing to do with any given father but rather represents any signifier that draws the attention of the child's primary caretaker away from the child becomes less convincing around page 115 when Fink addresses so called sexual difference in Lacan though through no fault of Fink's ownLacan's vision of gender difference or so called sexual difference or sexuation as explicated by Bruce Fink is a tautology Lacan explicates two psychoanalytic categories of Man and Woman having nothing to do with biology or conceivably social conditioning that is understood to produce gender as such and to do with relations to Lacan's symbolic and Real and of course how one accesses jouissance The partner of so called Man is that of the object a The partner of so called Woman is the phallus the phallus as the signifier of the Other's desire Woman is situated in closer relation to the Real than Man This issue is one of capitalizing on the notion of women as less productive entities because it is through Man's foregoing of jouissance and full alienation in language castration under the phallic function makes the Man productive in society Because Woman never fully gives up her jouissance she is necessarily less productive However Woman does operate sometimes under the phallic function and thus is partially alienated in language But doesn't this all sound like the feminine mystiue? Lacan argues that paraphrased by Marie Hélène Brousse in The Lacanian Review issue 2 that masculine jouissance of Man is a jouissance by means of a fantasy linked to an object and feminine jouisance of Woman is a jouissance of the order of rapture Fink reads Lacan identicallyBut again I don't dispute that these accounts of two muturally exclusive forms of subjectivity and subject constitution are useful I have avoided the term subject up until now but it seems to me that these two categories do explicate two fundamentally different types of subjectivity And yet again why Man and Woman? And why do certain aspects of Lacan's formulation fit cleanly into crass gendered stereotypes of men and women determined in biological or social terms? Such a coincidence is a call for additional uestioning on the part of the work Lacan's formulations are doingNeedless to say what Lacan terms Man and Woman can no serve as the basis for sexual difference than depression and anxiety Lacan's schemes and their attachment to the public signifier of man and woman are symptomatically impacted by the bifurcation of sexgender during his period of writing and thinking Despite Lacan's acknowledgments of sexual different that is different from different when biological organs and gender identity do not coincide or when biological organs do not signify in such a way that gender assignment was possible at birth his view of masculinefeminine ends up both tautological and reductive simply because of the terms he chooses and the deployment of these categories to explain certain neurosis Fink's other particularly wonderful articulations of Lacan come when he discusses the role of metaphor in the production of subjectivity and in the relation of the ethical positioning of the psychoanalytic subject In these cases I'll let Fink speak for himself On page 71 Fink writes Metaphor in opposition to understanding brings about a new configuration of thoughts establishing a new combination or permutation a new order in the signifying chain That kind of modification cannot occur without implicating the subject On page 68 Fink paraphrases Freud and writes I must come to be where foreign forces—the Other as language and the Other as desire—once dominated I must subjectify that otherness It is for this reason that we can say that the Lacanian subject is ethically motivated based as it is on this Freudian injunction the essential clinical task is to make the I appear there where it was in the causeunconsciousThough I have probably spent time being critical of Fink and Lacan here than praising them it must be made clear that I adore them both If you are anything like me then reading The Lacanian Subject would be well worth your time
