One of Lacan’s main criticisms of ego-psychology and object-relations theory is that these schools A–Z 27 betrayed Freud’s discovery by returning to the pre-Freudian concept of the subject as an autonomous ego (S2, 11). 2. On another level, Lacan’s views can be seen not only as a subversion of the cogito, but also as an extension of it, for the cogito not only encapsulates the false equation subject=ego=consciousness which Lacan opposes, but also focuses attention on the concept of the SUBJECT, which Lacan wishes to retain.
The ethics of psychoanalysis enjoin analysands to recognise their own part in their sufferings. Thus when Dora complains about being treated as an object of exchange by the men around her, Freud’s first intervention is to confront her with her own complicity in this exchange (Ec, 218–19; see Freud, 1905e). being (être) Lacan’s use of the term ‘being’ introduces a metaphysical note to his discourse that distinguishes it from most other schools of psychoanalytic theory, which refuse to engage with their metaphysical and philosophical foundations (see E, 228).
Lacan argues that his refusal of biological reductionism is not a contradiction of Freud but a return to the essence of Freud’s work. When Freud used biological models, he did A–Z 19 so simply because biology was at that time a model of scientific rigour in general, and because the conjectural sciences had not then achieved the same degree of rigour. Freud certainly did not confuse psychoanalysis with biology or any other exact science, and when he borrowed concepts from biology (such as the concept of the drive) he reworked them in such a radical way that they become totally new concepts.
