Sample text

We are often able to see the schema triumphing over the experience of the individual. (Freud 1918: 119) Thus Freud formulates his controversial ‘phylogenetic’ hypothesis, which seeks to explain the general structure of primal fantasies and of the Oedipus complex. Individual development (onto-genesis) would follow the process of human evolution (phylo-genesis). ‘Impressive analogies from biology have prepared us to find that the individual’s mental development repeats the course of human development in an abbreviated form’ (Freud 1910: 97).

And how sharp is the distinction between unconscious and conscious fantasies? For although there is clearly a difference between the fantasy-work in dreams and in daydreams, even the material of daydreams stems from the unconscious. The question of consciousness and the unconscious with regards to fantasy was therefore also a central issue of the Controversial Discussions (Bott Spillius 2001). In her paper ‘The Nature and Function of Phantasy’, which was first given at the Discussions, Susan Isaacs departs from the central role of unconscious fantasies in the work of Melanie Klein to introduce a distinction between conscious and unconscious fantasies.

Images are essentially connected to experiences of pleasure: they are invested with libido (so that objects of fantasy are largely working on the level of affection). 4 The drive has a psychical object, and fantasy is the formation of this object. To understand how Lacan’s work considers fantasy as the primary formation of the object, we must start at the beginnings and consider how in the early work of Lacan fantasy is primarily thought of as the imaginary order. 2 The ego of reflection The mirror-image Lacan’s theory of the imaginary order consists first of all of a theorization of man’s identification with the mirror-image.
