Sample text

My short answer is no. Violence cannot be understood only in this negative way – as a ‘lack’. On the contrary, the very nature of violence is that it is productive. Violence is always accompanied by the generation of a particular meaning and desire about the enemy. It is precisely here that the misconception of the notions of otherness and desire become central: contrary to what Honneth claims, the relationship with the other is permanently marked by an interruption or impossibility. The desire of the desire of the other not only opens the door for recognition (as a demand for love), but also leads to a relationship of aggressive jealousy (your joy is my misery) and hate.

4 Fantasy The stated features of language, desire and subjectivity, are expressed inter-subjectively in the impossibility of full recognition and in the relation of aggressive jealousy between the self and the other. ” This uncertainty about what the other really wants leads us to fantasy. Fantasy functions as a construction, as an overproduction of meaning. It is an imaginary scenario filling out the void, the opening of the desire of the other. ” (Zizek, 1997, p. ) Fantasy plays the role of concealing this inconsistency.
