To awake, Shakespeare of the Night you shake off the night, no, you night without shaking off anything unless the name, for which you search, or the name that is searching for you, you remain in that state I hesitate to call hypnopompic, first because that doesn’t seem especially consonant with how their psychoanalysis works or psychoanalysis works there, not consonant because in truth they don’t mess about, they’re off, already away as if with the fairies or with fairy, like being with child, their fairies there be, with everything that links fairy to

does state that she is going to use psychoanalysis as a ‘political weapon’ to destroy the cinematic pleasures that reinforce the position of the femininine as castrated in the patriarchal unconscious.3 She also writes that Hollywood cinema’s invisible work ‘satisf[ying]’ and ‘reinforc[ing]’ the masculine ego must be ‘attacked.’4 And yet, Mulvey’s militant vocabulary does not dominate the text, though it does underscore Mandy Merck’s argument that ‘Visual Pleasure’ is, at its heart, a feminist manifesto. Building upon Mulvey’s description of the essay’s stance as

radical politics. This will include: the ethics of postmodern irony – Richard Rorty; the ethics of psychoanalysis – Lacan and Zˇizˇek; and the ethics of the Other – Levinas and Derrida. Ethics and radical politics The conditions of postmodernity are marked, as I have argued, not only by the death of God, but also the breakdown of the Enlightenment moral metanarratives that were developed to fill His place. Kant formulated ethics as duty to a universaliseable moral law which was suprasensible, and beyond empirical observation and pathological considerations. Thus we had

the ability to live with it in its utter absence of reason [Grundlosigkeit]. Thus the neurotic, i.e. Everyman, may declare with great seriousness and in all awe that there is merely a minimal difference between God in heaven and a pain in the stomach. Since both emanate from one source and serve one purpose: to transform anxiety into fear.1 August 1936 was a particularly anxious time for Beckett. He had been living in Dublin for about eight months, since returning from London just before Christmas 1935, having broken off his two-year course of psychoanalysis with

A thousand contradictions
Marc James Léger

relations within everyday life obscures the basis of exploitation. Psychoanalysis, however, does not consider the function of ideology at the level of objective conditions, but at the level of subjectivity. Even Karl Marx addressed the ‘metaphysical subtleties and theological niceties’ of the commodity. In Brave New Avant Garde I made a case for what I refer to as sinthomeopathic practices – projects that rely on contradictory forms of identification with the symptoms and institutions of art under contemporary capitalism.

. His fame in England seemed – wrongly, as it turned out – secured when he embarked on a radio career in 1934, which later took him on to television as a story-teller and led in 1949 to the award of a CBE for services to literature.

formulation of predictions and a search for causal factors of explanation. As with the industrial technologies that developed in conjunction with the progress of the natural sciences, so there were policy-orientated and therapeutic practices that developed from the social sciences. These ranged from bureaucratised teacher training and mass education to social work and psychoanalysis, as new ‘knowledges’ were conceptualised and

of partisan groups being formed around the three main trends, or courants , of the MLF movement: the courant féministe radical , the courant psychanalyse et politique and the courant lutte de classes (radical feminist trend, psychoanalysis and politics trend and class struggle trend). Some of the main developments in 1971 were in the radical feminist category: the creation of the lesbian Gouines Rouges (Red Dykes) in March and the Mouvement pour la liberté de l’avortement (MLA) in April, along with the FHAR or Front homosexuel d
