Seminar VI : 10th December 1958 : Ch 5, p58 of Cormac Gallagher’s translation

What completely changes the nature of his relationships to the object, is this crucial point of the nature of his relationships to the object which is precisely called desire. It is in this field that we are trying to articulate the relationships of the subject to the object in the sense that they are relationships of desire, because it is in this field that analytic experience teaches us that there is something to be articulated. The relationship of the subject to the object is not a relationship of need, the relationship of the subject to the object is a complex relationship which I am precisely trying to articulate before you. For the moment let us begin to indicate the following: it is because this relationship of the articulation of the subject to the object is situated there, that the object is found to be this something which is not the correlate and the correspondent of a need of the subject, but this something which supports the subject precisely at the moment at which he has to confront as one might say his own existence, which supports the subject in his existence, in his existence in the most radical sense, namely precisely in this that he exists in language, namely that he consists in something that is outside himself, in something that he can only grasp in its proper nature as language at the precise moment when he, as subject, must efface himself, vanish, disappear behind a signifier, which is precisely what one might call the panic point around which he must attach himself to something, it is precisely to the object qua object of desire that he attaches himself.

Somewhere, someone whom I will not immediately name today, in order not to confuse matters, someone quite contemporary, who is dead, has written: ‘If one managed to learn what the Miser came to know, what the Miser lost when his money-box was stolen from him, one would learn a great deal.’

[p59] It is exactly what we have to learn, I mean learn it for ourselves and teach it to others.

p84 : Question : to where in Jones is Lacan referring in the following passage? :

(i) Seminar VI : 7th January 1959 : It is the degree that something is expressed here that is the most essential point in which the being of the subject attempts to affirm itself. And this is all the more important to consider because it is precisely there, at this very locus that there should be produced what we so easily call the completed object, genital maturation; in other words everything that will constitute, as Mr. Jones biblically expresses it somewhere, the relationships of man and woman, will find itself, because man is a speaking subject, marked by the structural difficulties which are those expressed in the relationship of the $ with the a.

JE suspects it is the following passage:

(which is answered by Womanliness as a masquerade : 1929 : Joan Rivière or here & Guiding Remarks for a Congress on Feminine Sexuality : 1958 [Presented in Amsterdam, 5th September 1960] : Jacques Lacan or here)

(ii) The Early Development of Female Sexuality : 1927 : Ernest Jones : Available here

p462: The last consideration mentioned provides the biological reason for the most important psychological differences in the behaviour and attitude of the sexes. It leads directly to a greater dependence (as distinct from desire) of the female on the willingness and moral approbation of the partner than we usually find with the male, where the corresponding sensitiveness occurs in respect of another, authoritative male. Hence, among other things, the more characteristic reproaches and need for reassurance on the woman’s part. Among the important social consequences the following may be mentioned. It is well known that the morality of the world is essentially a male creation and – what is much more curious – that the moral ideals of women are mainly copied from those of men.

(iii) I think the following may be the biblical passages to which Jacques Lacan refers:

Quote from : https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Wife-Submit-To-Your-Husband/

1 Peter 3:1-22 – Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;    (Read More…)

Ephesians 5:22-24 – Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.    (Read More…)

Colossians 3:18 – Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

1 Peter 3:7 – Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

1 Peter 3:5 – For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:

1 Timothy 2:12 – But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Ephesians 5:33 – Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.

Galatians 3:28 – There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 3:1-7 – Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;    (Read More…)

Note

 

Bruno de Florence notes, in a message of 19th August 2013, that there is a missing word on p223 of this session.  The missing word is in capitals and bold, as follows:

‘Perhaps I was forcing things a little in order to interest you, in order to show you the way these things link up with elective experiences of our clinical work. We will no doubt come back to it. You can however be sure that it is impossible in any case, without this reference to this pathological schema, to this drama, to properly situate what was put forward for the first time by Freud at the analytic level under the name of UNHEIMLICH .It is not linked, as some have thought, to all sorts of eruptions from the unconscious. It is linked to this sort of disequilibrium which is produced in the phantasy, and in so far as the phantasy, breaking through the limits which are first of all assigned to it, is decomposed and comes to rediscover that by which it rejoins the image of the other. In fact this is only a hint.’
