Thursday 4/18 | Delusion

In There are Four Discourses, Lacan says that Freud thought:

That all is but a dream and that everyone (if one can say such a thing), that everyone is mad, that is, delusional.

In the novel A Visit from the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan writes:

one key ingredient of so-called experience is the delusional faith that it is unique and special, that those included in it are privileged and those excluded from it are missing out.


There are Four Discourses appears in Culture/Clinic. The quote is on page 3.

A Visit from the Goon Squad, can be taught on Amazon.
