Unquenched desire, the dividing up of the drives, repetition, and symptom are the keywords concerning the effects on the body of the unconscious as deciphered by Freud. Harmony is not on the agenda, but rather the discordance, unlinking, and arrogance of cynical jouissances. Indeed, it seems that the discourse of capitalism is today increasing the deleterious consequences of this, with all of these demonstrative suicides, but also suicides as diverse as those of terrorists, Tibetan monks, those harassed in the capitalist company, and all the hopeless of our time. Hence the question that Lacan put forward concerning the possible “humanisation” of this denatured animal about whom Freud did not hesitate to say that he is a wolf to man, even though he has always made community. What will the psychoanalyst say about possible solutions, he whose act excludes the call to norms of any order whatsoever?
