The Trauma of Eros and Interpretation and Difference: Eric Anders Journal of European Psychoanalysis. Bass turns to the work of Melanie Klein because she is focused on early anxiety, but her theory also assumes original undifferentiation: This confirms the subject as not present to itself and constituted on becoming space, in temporizing and also, as Saussure said, that "language [which consists only of differences] is not a function of the speaking subject": But structural difference will not be considered without him already destabilizing from the start its static, synchronictaxonomicahistoric motifs, remembering that all structure already refers to the generative movement in the play of differences: This adherence to a "reality" belonging to Western philosophy is what Derrida is attempting to transcend.
Is there a traumatic aspect of care?
Bass argues it must. I have attempted elsewhere to show what is traditional in such a gesture, and to what necessities it submits. And in reconstituting the history or prehistory of their science, they are discovering numerous ancestors, sometimes with a certain astonished recognition.
Northwestern University Press, For example, androgyny carries traces of masculine and feminine; the traces of the observer remain in an objectively pursued scientific experiment; in nature, the law of survival of the fittest has repercussions in social organization and structures.
Ever since Plato, the written word has been considered as a alan bass writing and difference derrida representation of the spoken word: The deconstructed term thus becomes undecidable Hottois, Loewald seems to neglect the fact that, in addition to being a force of integration, Eros also raises tension levels.
Like Loewald before him, Bass is interested in revisiting the Freudian conception of the drives as unconnected to environment. See Bass; Derrida Saussure is considered one of the fathers of structuralism when he explained that terms get their meaning in reciprocal determination with other terms inside language: Ethnographic investigation and a variety of textual forms are used to address each of these cultures and the relationship between them.
Deferral also comes into play, as the words that occur following "house" or "white" in any expression will revise the meaning of that word, sometimes dramatically so. This acute awareness of the limits of performative programs informs the essays throughout and attunes them closely to events of a world undergoing "globalization.
This idea is further reinforced by the fact that the character becomes an "I" who takes charge of the narrative on the very page where "virtual reality" comes in, with no anchor in the real world.
The book's first half, which includes the celebrated essay on Descartes and Foucault, shows the development of Derrida's method of deconstruction.
He is the translator of The Post Card: This may explain one way in which human thought is creative, and distinctive from animal cognition. But, since he is advocating a generalization of fetishism, it would seem that increases in tension that do not threaten the primary narcissism organization should be differentiated as painful, rather than as traumatic, for the "normal" fetishist, or with respect to normal fetishes.
During this first phase, then, writing must dominate speech, other must prevail over self, absence over presence, perception over understanding, and so on. The differences in forces write memory, and therefore write "the very essence of the psyche.
Identity must actively and repetitively reestablish itself via the repetitive reestablishment of conscious- objective space-time: Primary Disavowal The forgetting of difference Bass focuses on is the disavowal or splitting of the fetishist, the disavowal of sexual difference.
We address this challenge by describing a simple computational implementation that exhibits internal knowledge representations whose similarity structure alters fluidly depending on context.
Indiana University Press,p. This infinite chain from signifier to signifier results in a never-ending game and opens the text, displaces it, sets it in motion. The way elemental oppositions are put to work in all texts it is not only a theoretical operation but also a practical option.
The drive toward dedifferentiation, the death drive, resists the surface difference of analytic time—it repeats, remembers, acts out painful experiences within a time of dreams and their perceptual identities, and defends against "memory as internalization.
The Strangeness of Care—correspond to these two worlds: One could show that this is not a chance encounter. Anders 16 With his revision of primary narcissism in terms of primary disavowal, Bass is concerned with the very foundation of "the whole organization": Gk theo — ria f.Interpretation and Difference by Alan Bass,and Derrida's understanding of how and why difference is in general the "unthought of metaphysics." All three see metaphysics engaged with a "registration and repudiation of difference," and all three rethink interpretation in relation to this question.
The synthesis of these. First published inWriting and Difference, a collection of Jacques Derrida's essays written between andhas become a landmark of contemporary French thought.
Writing and Difference reveals the unacknowledged program that makes thought itself possible. In analyzing the contradictions inherent in this program, Derrida foes on to develop new ways of thinking, reading, and writing, new ways based on the most complete and rigorous understanding of the old ways.
