The introduction outlines the distinctions between subjectivity, personality, and character, tentatively aligning the character (singularity) with the Lacanian real. It offers an initial look at what it might mean to be called to one's character in Lacanian terms. And it draws a distinction between the ethics of subjective destitution and the ethics of sublimation, specifying that while the book will discuss both, its emphasis will be on the latter.

Keywords: subjectivity; personality; character; the real; ethics; subjective destitution; sublimation
