The definition: love is “giving” what “you do not have.”
Sub-Proposition 1: “The object of love can be the Master signifier.”
It results from the definition: One can only give that thing that does not belong to the Other. So love is not just a signifier but the Master signifier.
Sub-Proposition 2: “The object of love can be the objet petit a.”
What is given is what you have. It follows that the love is not of the “sense.” And the love is not of knowledge.
One gives from where It is. One is where It does not think. It follows that the subject of love is not subject of the unconscious.
The one gives where the other is. It follows that the object is not of the objects but of the Other’s objet petite a.
The proposition: “The object of Love is the Master signifier or the other’s objet petit a.”
It results that the one who is the subject of love must coincide with the Master signifier or the Other’s objet petite a. But being subject is not being object. Furthermore, for to give it is necessary that the subject of love be in the place of the Other. It follows that the love is the Master signifier (S1) or their shared objet petit a.
The proposition (corrected):The object of Love is the master signifier or their shared objet petit a.
Giving is to render, is to know how to use… Also it means to present or to fragment. As Lacan says the analyst is the one who knows how to use the symptom. Also he says of the woman as the man’s symptom.
It follows that:
The main proposition of love:
For there to be love the partners must be both in a revolution, or the man is an analyst and the woman is his sinthôme.
