LUSTOZA, Rosane Zétola. A angústia como sinal do desejo do Outro. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2006, vol.6, n.1, pp. 44-66. ISSN 1518-6148.

The aim of this paper is to investigate the meaning of the articulation between anguish and the desire of the Other proposed by Jacques Lacan at the Seminar X. The concept of the desire of the Other was used in order to work on this analysis. Throughout Lacan's work such concept has received different definitions according to the three registers he has isolated - imaginary, symbolic, and real. I first intend to outline a description of each of these concepts and then move on to the understanding of a hypothesis in which the idea of anguish marks the emergency of the desire of the Other understood within a specific register, that of the real. I also suggest that the Other real is presented as an inconsistent and paradoxal character. In order to make this point clear, I am briefly outlining what inconsistency to logic would be. Based on a psychoanalytical use of this logic notion, the aim here is to show how the uprising of the inconsistency of the Other makes the subject lose its status as a symbolic entity, incorporating the position of jouissance object and thus triggering anguish. Anguish is the affection that reveals the lack of the subject's autonomy and that in this case is prevented from responding before the Other whose desire is enigmatic to himself.

Palavras-chave : anguish; subject; desire of the Other; real; inconsistency.
