Lacan et l’amour au temps du capitalisme

Abstract : We examine what Lacan says of the capitalism which would relate to the problem of love to serve as mark to seize the current evolution of today’s lifestyles. Lacan takes account of the social field and he joins number of economic considerations into his theorization. He evokes the figures of the rich and the poor in particular to present the dialectic of request, need and gift of love. He develops the capitalist discourse in parallel with the love talk and speech. Love comes in counterpoint of sex and the reign of the Oneness in the modern world. The ethical position of the capitalist seems to make love glitter so that he is conspicuously absent.
