Abstract | Full Text

Lacan recommends reading Kierkegaard, an author who Freud has not cited at all, which invites us to a transdisciplinary experience on the notion of repetition, as an element of the unconscious mind, in an attempt to provide greater philosophical depth to Sigmund Freud. Our starting point is Kierkegaard's question whether repetition is actually possible. For pre-Socratics, it was not possible since the world was immobile for them, while for Heraclitus, the world was in a continuous dialectical state of becoming, which anticipated Hegel, a philosopher Lacan has studied thoroughly. For Kierkegaard, repetition is life itself. Nasio shows us two types of repetition: the healthy one and the pathological one, an issue that we hereby try to elucidate. We can liberate ourselves from repetition by elaborating through reviviscence, synthesis of the pre-Socratic immobility and the Heraclitian.
