Eulogy of the unconscious – Part 3

With this third episode we dive into what it means to accept one’s desire, and how this does not coincide necessarily with a happy and tranquil life. We see how much easier it can be to just surrender to the expectations of others, as opposed to pursuing our desire – what Lacan calls ‘encountering the real’.

Then, we see what the ideal conditions for the growth – and fulfilment – of this desire are. Surprisingly, it’s not a lack of limits or a disinhibited freedom of flowing that encourages its manifestation; it’s a ‘NO’ that creates the opportunity.
