BREATH «a token of life»

The School of the Freudian Letter UK presents

Dr. Llewellyn Brown

BREATH – «a token of life»

 

Summary

The question of breath appears as problematic, since it is both irreducibly anchored in the body, and escapes the imaginary register, the latter including within its sphere conceptual language, the signifier, and the body reduced to a specular whole. As such, it touches on the real, a part that cannot be caught up within subjectivity. It is anchored in the primordial inscription of the speaking being in language, in the unbearable anguish of the spasm prior to lalangue. Through various passages of the works of Samuel Beckett, it will be seen as untamable, and ex-sisting from words. As foreign to identification, it none the less infuses words with life, engendering a radical and vivifying disharmony, and offering an indispensable liberation from the stifling specular body.
