Example text

Before going any further, we need to clarify the use of our terms. "Self* is a term that Lacan avoids at every turn. The very term is so wrapped in humanist meaning that he could not in good conscience continue to use it. Instead, Lacan speaks of the creation of "the subject"—a term emphasizing the subjected nature of the person and its radical linguistic and cultural construction. However, in his later work (post 1950), Lacan reserves the term "subject" for the subject in language, that is, he reserves the term for one who has moved from the Imaginary to the Symbolic.

It is my contention that similar to the contrastive pairing of Sartre and Lacan, the contrastive pairing of Levinas and Lacan is precisely the set of post-humanist alternate contemporaries we are seeking. Both Levinas and Lacan share some basic interests, and both view their projects as attempts to intervene in the liberal humanist constructions of ethical systems, examining and questioning the nature and the role of the subject in moral action. As such, they stand as two powerful alternatives when discussing in a post-humanist context the question of human subjectivity in general and ethical subjectivity in particular.

Still, the reader should not walk away thinking that in this project I ultimately take a side, either Lacan over Levinas or Levinas over Lacan. 44 It is my strong contention that each thinker has something unique and essential to offer a theory of ethical subjectivity and that to fill in the gaps each needs the other. The book will unfold in four chapters, framed by an introduction and a conclusion. The four chapters will be close readings of key texts by Levinas and Lacan on a particular topic.
