Example text

It is not so uncomplicated. Substituting mastery for genuine questions of epistemology is a substitution that I think is fundamentally detrimental to the psychoanalytic project. The question of what can be known and how it can be know was raised by Freud the minute he highlighted this idea of the unconscious and unconscious desire. Epistemological questions are foundational to the clinical act; mastery is something else. If the unconscious is not an object of mastery, then knowledge of it would have to be something different from this.

The unconscious is our great equalizer. I think, and I hope I will show, that this is why the object is not lamented in its nonexistence but celebrated in its absence or loss. Making failure universal does not sanction violence; it is an attempt to counter it. That we may finally be able to rest on this point of emptiness is the perhaps indecent promise of the psychoanalyst. Adorno is never master of this none, but master of one—one life, one object, one faith, one failure. Good that he’s got it under his control.

The point of satisfaction was with the letter. It’s imagined history acted as a stopping point. Thinking of this, I was reminded that in the houses in which I lived as a child we couldn’t build basements. The water table is too high. The idea that the earth wasn’t solid, that water was not just all around but below as well seemed to imply that the only direction to reach was upward. That the Philippines consist of thousands upon thousands of islands is another aspect of the felt absurdity in this dream.
