There is something of the real of the symptom that is missing in the face of this unbearable lightness of being.

Read abstract
in spanish

Félix Rueda habla del insoportable que resulta de la conjunción de la ciencia y del capitalismo. Han logrado un mundo que parece ser la pura extensión sin límite de los semblantes, desamarrados de lo real. Ante ello, recuerda el peso específico de la propuesta de Lacan; lo real del síntoma frente a esta insoportable levedad del ser.

in english

Félix Rueda talks about the unbearable that results from the conjunction of capitalism and science. They both engendered a world that seems to be the pure, limitless extention of semblants shifted from the real. He then reminds us of Lacan's proposition: the real of the symptom in the face of the unbearable lightness of being.
