To demonstrate the working of poetic language, Kristeva engages in a detailed study of nineteenth-century avant-garde poetry (notably that of Stéphane Mallarmé and the Comte de Lautréamont). The supreme irony, Kristeva argues, is that the most challenging (and to many, the most obscure) avant-garde writing (Joyce, for example) is indebted to childhood experience, an experience of universal scope.

Bruno Bettelheim, “Freud and Man’s Soul” – Rethink.

I could say more about the book, but for those of you who also grapple with the question of the character of political philosophy, you can see how psychoanalysis, or something like it, begins to open a most necessary inquiry. Something about way political philosophy inspired by Leo Strauss is conducted nowadays stays deliberately blind to the educative process. It’s strange how one can detail a number of techniques used by the greatest authors, gain a number of insights, and have nothing to say about who people actually are.

Love Dog: Lacan used to say, ‘To love is to give what you…

YES. My dad was saying the same thing to me in Berlin last month. That love–unlike sex–is not a meta-language. It’s singular. You build it, make it, give it, from scratch. It’s wthout jargon or formula. Give what is missing in you. What you wish you were. What the other needs and doesn’t have. What has been lost.
