Rômulo Ferreira compares the real to an unforeseeable and inevitable fuzziness

Read abstract
in english

In order to situate the subject's relations to the real in an analysis and to distinguish them from the access to the real by way of science, Rômulo Ferreira proposes for us a marine metaphor. Science uses various techniques to forecast tides and waves that are well known to surfers and sailors. But the fuzziness of the real is inevitably that which surprises. Also, the sea, in all honesty, remains unforeseeable, and the encounter with this real is contingent and impossible to circumvent.

Translation : Samya Seth

in portuguese

Rômulo Ferreira da Silva propõe uma metáfora para delimitar o real tal como o aborda a psicanálise e a ciência, a do real como uma onda do mar. Não a onda conhecida, como a do surfista, mas a que surpreende quem não tem intimidade com o mar. Esse real não seria aquele contornável pela ciência, que encontraria tecnologias para, por exemplo, prever as marés e as ondas Trata-se aqui da metáfora de um encontro contingencial com algo incontornável.
