Christiane Alberti spots the varity of the real in the quasi-dissolution of the difference between the sexes.

en english

For Christiane Alberti, the varity of the real is spotted in the dissolution of the semblants. So for example, the question of being a mother must be reviewed in the light of the quasi-dissolution of the difference between the sexes. Furthermore, fathers are mothers like the others! Lacan invites us to question the continuity from the semblant to the real. But then, is it because established discourses are sapped at their base that enjoyment expresses itself more, and in a cruder manner? Or, is it rather that enjoyment has changed that the discourses no longer manage to treat it? According to Christiane Alberti, it's a circle, and the real fits inside this cercle just as much as it does in the century.

Pour Christiane Alberti, la varité du réel se repère à travers la dissolution des semblants. Ainsi par exemple, la question d'être mère doit être revue à l'aune de la quasi-dissolution de la différence des sexes. D'ailleurs, les pères sont des mères comme les autres ! Lacan invite à s'interroger sur la continuité du semblant au réel. Mais alors, est-ce parce que les discours établis sont sapés dans leurs fondements que la jouissance s'exprime davantage et de façon plus crue ? Ou bien est-ce parce que la jouissance a changé que les discours n'arrivent plus à la traiter ? Selon Christiane Alberti, c'est un cercle, et le réel se tient dans ce cercle tout autant que dans le siècle.
