Even some Lacanians reduce psychoanalysis to a kind of heroic assumption of a necessary… sacrifice … when the analysand is able to accept a fundamental renunciation as a condition of access to desire (“symbolic castration”).Enjoy Your Symptom - Slavoj Zizek (via alterities)
Lacan is as far as possible from such an ethic of heroic sacrifice: … The Other itself doesn’t possess what the subject lacks, and no sacrifice can compensate for this lack of the Other.
the lack to be assumed by the subject is not its own but that of the Other, which is … more unbearable.
Our parents raise us in hopes that we may do what they never could. But some of us end up doing what they will never understand.
[I]n Nietzsche, individualism is accompanied by a lively critique of the notions of “self” and “I.” For Nietzsche there is a kind of dissolution of the self. The reaction against oppressive structures is no longer done, for him, in the name of a “self” or an “I.” On the contrary, it is as though the “self” and the “I” were accomplices of those structures.Gilles Deleuze, "Nietzsche’s Burst of Laughter: Interview" (via becoming-vverevvolf)
