Richard David Precht,Isidoro Reguera's Amor. Un sentimiento desordenado (El Ojo del Tiempo) PDF

By Richard David Precht,Isidoro Reguera

«¿Cómo escribir un libro sobre el amor? ¿Sobre algo tan privado, velado, maravillosamente ilusorio como el amor? De este libro no aprenderá usted nada que mejore sus habilidades en el dormitorio. Tampoco le ayudará en caso de ataques de celos, penas de amor y pérdida de confianza. Y no contiene sugerencias y apenas buenos consejos para los angeles convivencia diaria en pareja. Aunque quizá pueda contribuir a que usted se vuelva más consciente de unas cuantas cosas que antes le resultaban poco claras; a que tenga ganas de sondear con mayor exactitud este reino loco en el que (casi) todos queremos vivir. Y posiblemente piense usted conmigo un poco en las reacciones que ha consolidado como normales y supuestas. Quizá tenga ganas de proceder con usted mismo en el futuro un poco más inteligentemente; aunque, naturalmente, sólo si y cuando usted quiera.»

L'Autresexe (Essais) (French Edition) by Jean ALLOUCH PDF

By Jean ALLOUCH

Freud avait posé les préliminaires. Seul, cependant, à énoncer son « Il n'y a pas de rapport sexuel », Jacques Lacan n’a pu s’y autoriser qu’en distinguant un registre inédit du sexuel, différent de ce que les analystes (lui inclus) avaient jusque-là discoveŕ : complexes, stades, pulsions, fantasmes, phallus, objets partiels, petit a, plus-de-jouir, etc.
Là où fait défaut le rapport sexuel, les partenaires sont autant de personnages comme de théâtre d’un Autre inexistant : femme, vierge, hystérique, homme, vir, virgo, dame, bonhomme, bonne femme, auxquels on joindra, avec Michel Foucault, le maître vintage, les femmes, le garçon et l’épouse.
Rendu présent par leur entremise, c’est à chaque fois de l’Autre pris en corps qu’il s’agit, de l’Autresexe.
Réaliser qu’il n’y a avec lui pas de rapport sexuel qui puisse s’écrire relève d’une expérience traumatisante. C’est pourtant l. a.̀ que, selon Lacan, chacun a rendez-vous avec sa liberté.
