In this last class, Marie Hélène Brousse addresses what Lacan called, in his Seminar RSI, “L’affecte d’ex-ister, support du symptôme”. Currently, the identity becomes hard and aims to take the place of the master-signifier. It is present on all fronts. A psychoanalysis attempts to treat what is wrong in these contemporary entanglements with identity. A speaking body never touches the being by the signifier, but psychoanalysis can find an irreducible Real that returns to the same place.
