Lacan e la luce violenta di Antigone

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Lacan and the violent light of Antigone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The least that can be said is that Lacan is fascinated by Antigone. That "baby" is special enough to get caught up in it. Lacan dedicated the final part of the seminar on the ethics of psychoanalysis to it. What he discovered about Antigone, lifting the unbearable veil of her brilliance, is that her death wish can be seen with the naked eye. The ethical stakes are the highest: to ensure that the dead body of the brother does not become a bastard. The political question, then, is open: can community be created, starting from this abysmal solitude of desire?
