Ethics of the real : Kant, Lacan by Alenka Zupančič( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of Kantian ethics is both simple and revolutionary: it proposes a moral law independent of any notion of a pre-established Good or any 'human inclination' such as love, sympathy or fear. In attempting to interpret such a revolutionary proposition in a more 'humane' light, and to turn Kant into our contemporary--someone who can help us with our own ethical dilemmas--many Kantian scholars have glossed over its apparent paradoxes and impossible claims. This book is concerned with doing exactly the opposite. Kant, thank God, is not our contemporary; he stands against the grain of our times. Lacan on the face of it appears the very antithesis of Kant--the wild theorist of psychoanalysis compared to the sober Enlightenment thinker. His concept of the Real, however, provides perhaps the most useful backdrop to this new interpretation of Kantian ethics. Constantly juxtaposing her readings of the two philosophers, Alenka Zupancic summons up an 'ethics of the Real', and clears the ground for a radical restoration of the disruptive element in ethics. -- Publisher description
What is sex? by Alenka Zupančič( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consider sublimation -- conventionally understood as a substitute satisfaction for missing sexual satisfaction. But what if, as Lacan claims, we can get exactly the same satisfaction that we get from sex from talking (or writing, painting, praying, or other activities)? The point is not to explain the satisfaction from talking by pointing to its sexual origin, but that the satisfaction from talking is itself sexual. The satisfaction from talking contains a key to sexual satisfaction (and not the other way around) -- even a key to sexuality itself and its inherent contradictions. The Lacanian perspective would make the answer to the simple-seeming question, "What is sex?" rather more complex. In this volume in the 'Short Circuits' series, Alenka Zupancic approaches the question from just this perspective, considering sexuality a properly philosophical problem for psychoanalysis; and by psychoanalysis, she means that of Freud and Lacan, not that of the kind of clinician practitioners called by Lacan "orthopedists of the unconscious." 00Zupancic argues that sexuality is at the point of a "short circuit" between ontology and epistemology. Sexuality and knowledge are structured around a fundamental negativity, which unites them at the point of the unconscious. The unconscious (as linked to sexuality) is the concept of an inherent link between being and knowledge in their very negativity

4 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethik des Realen : Kant, Lacan by Alenka Zupančič( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in German and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of Kantian ethics from the perspective of questions and paradoxes raised by Jacques Lacan in his own discussion of ethics. Kant's "revolution" in ethics reverses the relationship between the notion of Good and the moral law: the moral law does not arise from a pre-established notion of Good, it is the notion of Good that is "subjected" to the moral law. The book deals with consequences of this conceptualization and shows their relevance for contemporary discussion of ethics
