3 Before I leave you today, I'd simply like to make a few remarks. There is something that you can see appearing in like fashion in both Hegel's formula and mine. As paradoxical as it may seem, their first term is an object a. It's an object a that desires. If the Hegelian concept of desire and the one I'm promoting to you here have something in common, it's this. At a moment which is precisely the unacceptable point of impasse in the process of the Selbstbewusstsein as Hegel would have it, the subject, being this object, is irremediably stamped with finitude.
The point we:re at in the theory of desire in its relationship to the Other actually delivers up the key to the following.
