“One can say right off that the search for a way, for a truth, is not absent from our experience. For what else are we seeking in analysis if not a liberating truth?
But we must be careful. One must not always trust words and labels. This truth that we are seeking in a concrete experience is not that of a superior law. If the truth that we are seeking is a truth that frees, it is a truth that we will look for in a hiding place in our subject. It is a particular truth.”
“At the level of the unconscious, the subject lies. And this lying is his way of telling the truth of the matter.”
(Jacques Lacan, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis)
