Being is Desire – Jacques-Alain Miller
The metaphysics of analytic action
From recognition to the cause of the desire
Jouissance as cause of psychical reality
I have been trained by Lacan’s teaching to conceive of the subject as a want-to-be, nonsubstantial, which has a radical incidence in the practice of analysis. In Lacan’s last teaching, with these increasingly fragmentary and enigmatic indications being asked to pull a lot of weight, the viewfinder of the subject as want-to-be vanishes. Instead of this category which is, strictly speaking, ontological, since there is question of being here, there then comes the category of the hole, which is not without rapport with the want-to-be but is nevertheless from a register other than ontology.
