The return of subjectivity

By Christian Hoffmann

For Lacan, a young analyst should be able to rejoin the subjectivity of his time. The analyst of today can become the interpreter of the contemporary subjectivities by recognizing the diversity and variability of their constructions and by interrogating the connections between these subjectivities and question of the subject. It remains to distinguish the subject from an identity. The absence of this distinction can be seen as the key problem of Foucault’s work.
