Quote of the Day: It’s Written by Jacques-Alain Miller


If we do not take the unconscious as the subject of the unconscious, we take it as a memory where all is already written, where it’s just a matter of managing to read what is already written. On the contrary – if we take the unconscious as a subject, the “it’s written” is in the speech itself.
