– There’s what Freud called Liebesbedingung, the condition for love, the cause of desire. – The reality of the unconscious outstrips fiction. Another example, taken from my practice, is the following: a boss in his fifties is seeing applicants for a secretarial post; a young woman of twenty comes in; straight away he declares his love. Men and women speak, they live in a world of discourse, that’s what’s decisive. The more a man devotes himself to just one woman, the more she tends to take on a maternal signification for him: more sublime and untouchable than loved. People in love are in fact condemned to go on learning the other’s language indefinitely, groping around, seeking out the keys – keys that are always revocable.
