Sample text

It was Lacan who took the initiative of promoting this idea. He mainly emphasized two aspects. The subject was conceived in relation to the signifier. This view of the subject, through dealing with language, was not to be confused with the grammatical subject. It leaned on the differentiation, classical in linguistics, OBJECT(S) AND SUBJECT 21 between the subject within the proposition and the subject that spells out the proposition (sujet de Ifinonce',sujet de 1'~nonciation). The main idea, which was very evocative for Lacan, was the splitting it involved.

The first question that this begs is, of course, what there is in the subject that predisposes it to be mobilized, in one way or another, by the object. In banal terms, why do you fall in love with a particular person, whilst some of your close friends may ask themselves what you are attracted to in that person? Secondly, the definition of the object must be related to the topography to which it belongs and to the space in which the object stands. If the subject can be conceived of as the destination of the object, or that which summons the object, then the attributes of the objects are dependent upon the spaces of which they are an integral part.

But other more subtle mechanisms have been described. Winnicott, in his paper "Mirror-Role of Mother and Family in Child Development'' (1971a), describes a precursor to the mirror stage presented by Lacan. Winnicott assumes that when the infant turns to his mother's face, generally what he sees is himself. A dialectical circle takes place here: the mother looks at the baby, and what her face expresses is in direct relationship with what she sees. affected by what she perceives of her internal mood.
