Abstract [en]

“Nowhere is the intention of the individual more evidently surpassed then by what the subject finds”, Jacques Lacan writes in his Report to the Congress held at the Instituto de Psicologie della Universitá di Roma in the year 1953. This Congress was marred by deep controversy ending up in the vote of ‘no confidence’ against Jacques Lacan, the president of the Societé Psychoanalytique de Paris who was then obliged to resign.

In the quotation an antagonist, opponent, enemy, challenger by Lacan is supposed to be derived from inside in one and the same instance. This is puzzling. Usually, we regard the subject as an entity identical with itself and furthermore an ethical integer. Three questions immediately arise as regards to the quotation above: what does the term “subject” actually mean, what is Lacan referring to when he writes “what the subject finds” and what is meant by “surpass? A “subject” going beyond its own intentionality could refer to a kind of homunculus, a Cartesian Cogito. With this hypothesis we are rather near to a solution. Though, Lacans structuralist approach generally paves the way for the poststructuralist movement. Thus, according to Lacan the subject which “finds” (something) is „structured like a language“ (Lacan: Seminar XI). At the same time it is not a conscious subject as one might think, rather it is meant to be an unconscious subject. Here language is not seen to be a representational system as we generally think of it, but rather refers to a kind of tacit knowledge.
