literacki


[in] imaginary objectification of the other … one loves the other … inasmuch as the other resembles oneself. … One loves the other inasmuch as the other is misrecognised as resembling one’s misrecognition of one’s self. A misrecognition of the self which originates in the other. ‘It is from [the other] as such that the misrecognitions which define me as a self are born.’ (Lacan, 1992: 198)
