You know what I'm thinking: Averroes' rather surprising notion that all of mankind shares a single intellect.

Lacan & Derrida Criticize Poe (Podcast)

Lacan & Derrida Criticize Poe (Podcast) | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

How should philosophers approach literature? Lacan read Edgar Allen Poe’s story about a sleuth who outthinks a devious Minister as an illustration of his model of the psyche, and why we persist in self-destructive patterns: we are driven by “the symbolic order,” which tells us our place. The letter, which in the story is an embarrassing but unspecified message to the Queen that has been stolen by the Minister and used to blackmail her, is for Lacan a symbol for the power of the signifier, which dictates the roles of the various characters in the story, as first one then another is pushed into a passive, vulnerable state by gaining possession of it, driven by the logic that moves the letter inexorably back to its “rightful place.”
