Series: Perspectives in Continental Philosophy

Processing the Real

Show Summary Details


This chapter sketches out a trajectory from Aristotle through Spinoza and Whitehead to Deleuze and Lacan. Lacan can be read either in more Platonic or in more Aristotelian terms, but it is ultimately more fruitful to understand him in an Aristotelian manner. In addition, it provides distinct perspectives in Lacan's interpretation of the Real in Seminar XX.

Keywords: real; Spinoza; Whitehead; Deleuze; Lacan; Aristotle; Plato; Seminar XX
