376). The function of the signifier can be recognized through its ability to lend itself to equivocation. The unconscious, in playing upon the equivocation, also acts to fix the meaning of the signifier. This is the case, for example, in the case of the signifier “wet”, the meaning of which varies according to the “period” in which the subject employs the term: sometimes, if it is connected to enuresis, it is the equivalent of masturbation, and sometimes the equivalence between white discharge and sperm points to an identification with a man.

2. The second meaning of the phrase exceeds the use of the genitive. It refers to the desire of the Other, insofar as this desire originates in the place of the Other. The intervention of a third party is determinant here. It should be noted that only a signifier can produce this effect: it starts at the place of the little other and creates a symbolic position there. For example, while it is clear that Dora is interested in a man because of his desire for a woman, the essence of her intrigue is intended to maintain the man’s desire.

ON FREUD’S TRANSFERENCE 31 If one supposes, furthermore, that a certain “transference love” is established in this relation, then Freud’s mistake is to break it off for reasons that are no more rooted in affect than is the transference itself. His error lies in not distinguishing the love-object from the object of identification—in slipping from an imaginary identification to a symbolic identification. The latter extends beyond the person’s narcissistic interests, from which love and hate spring, and points to a place from which he can perceive himself as being loveable and can identify with signifiers that, according to Lacan, result in the formation of the ego ideal.
