LECTURE: Civilization and its Objects, Lies and Disorders

This paper will review several Lacanian concepts such as: “social link”, the capitalistic discourse, the “surplus” object and the “surplus jouissance object” (object plus-de-jouir) in order to analyze its consequences: precariousness, hyper-hedonism and violence in today’s civilization.

SEMINAR: The Lacanian Body and its Objects

The title of this seminar will lead us to review Lacan’s teachings on the object a as a ‘pure corporeal deduction.' The substantial character of the five objects distinguished by Lacan -the breast, feces, the gaze, the voice and the phallus- will not prevent us to see that these ‘natural’ objects are a representation of a void structure, a hole. Furthermore, these objects may be easily replaced by separable objects that are artificial, and therefore cultural.
We shall tackle the object a as a ‘remainder,’ escaping from both signifying representation and the specular image, as a ‘bit of the body,’ an object lost and separated by a cut without the intervention of the symbolic. Preceding desire and law, this object is not what desire aims at, but what causes it. The body is no longer a form, a unity, in the way that the ‘mirror stage’ produced it, but the body of the ‘erogenous zones’ that circumscribe the hole left by the part that is forever separated from. So it was that Lacan would also come to speak of the object a as an object ‘off the body,’ by which he designates something that at once ‘escapes and remains linked.’
In Lacan's late teaching the body acquires on more and more importance. A man is not his body, he has a body – as he remarks when speaking of Joyce and of the ‘sinthome’ as a ‘body event’ – and with this body, he gets tangled up. The schizophrenic shows us up to what extent a subject may not manage to find a function for his organs. By the same token, he turns his body into an enigma. This raises some questions: what is required to make a body? How can a subject inhabit it?
