Example text

It is only in the reflection and in the ego as specular image or a reflected surface image that the subject can see his/her face as seen by the other. The gaze represents the eyes as seen and spoken by the Other, and the gaze as containing the eyes of both the ego and the Other. The gaze contains both what the eyes see as well as what they cannot see, what they see and what they are looking at, the eyes of the subject and the eyes of the other, the conscious eyes and the eye of the unconscious.

The void of the a is meant to remain empty like a mirror which can reflect back all the light and images it receives. This potential emptiness of the mirror will only be realised with the introduction of the Big O of the symbolic Other. Lacan identified the Other with the emptiness of the mirror. The child cannot be the "be all and end all" of the mother, otherwise this would be truly "pit-tiful" (the neologism pit-full) and a sign of the failure of the mother to separate from her intrapsychic~(ob/e£ a) and extrapsychic object (child).

The basis for symbolic equivalence, mutual reciprocity and substitutive ability of the various maternal partobjects lie in the fact that the objects involved in a symbolic equation share the characteristic of separability and the quality of being lost at one point or another. At four months, this feature will crystallise in the infant beginning a search for objects that may have dropped from view, disappeared, or lie hidden somewhere. The absent, dropped, and disappeared quality of a privileged objet a also led Lacan to add "the nothing" to his list of objets a.
