Fabian Fajnwaks comments on the quote from Seminar 7, "The ethics of psychoanalysis" (Lesson 12/16/59): "You will see this in the history of science and thought. This detour is indispensable if we are to reach the great revolutionary crisis of morality, namely, the systematic questioning of principles there where they need to be questioned, that is, at the level of the imperative. That is the culminating point for both Kant Sade with relation to the Thing; it is there that morality becomes, on the one hand, a pure and simple application of the universal maxim and, on the other, a pure and simple object. This point, is essential if one is to understand the step taken by Freud."
