The not-two condenses the concept our love and intercourse lives are dictated by way of the impossibility of fusing man's contradictory being with the heteros of girl as a essentially uncountable different. Sexual liaisons are sustained via a transcendental good judgment, the so-called phallic functionality that makes an attempt to beat this impossibility.

Chiesa additionally specializes in Lacan's serious discussion with sleek technology and formal common sense, in addition to his dismantling of sexuality as thought of by means of mainstream organic discourse. constructing a brand new common sense of sexuation according to incompleteness calls for the relinquishing of any alleged trademarks of lifestyles and any teleological evolution.

For Lacan, the reality of incompleteness as approached psychoanalytically via sexuality may let us move additional in debunking conventional onto-theology and substitute it with a "para-ontology" but to be built. Given the reality of incompleteness, Chiesa asks, do we imagine the sort of fact in itself with out turning incompleteness into one other fact approximately fact, that's, into another determine of God as absolute being?
