HOFFMANN, Christian. The subject and his modes of jouissance. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp. 9-13. ISSN 1516-1498.

The article shows how the psychic and bodily interiority of the subject articulates to the social. Considering that the subject would have a peculiar mode of jouissance, the article develops the idea that this subject would have an ethics of responsibility. It argues that the symptomatic formation not only implies suffering, but also an operation of "splitting" in the subject's being. Not reducing himself to his own image, or to his speech, he lives in a world of symbols whose articulation is made through a social discourse, allowing an articulation between his subjectivity and his unique mode of jouissance. A sexual jouissance is distinguished from another one which is more primary, an internal dimension of a non-eroticized destruction.

Palabras clave : Subject; drive circuit; jouissance; ethics; responsibility.
