Home, Not Alone
The notion of “home” evokes something familiar but also, as Freud beautifully demonstrated, it evokes the uncanny. This notion is examined using the example of a case of phobia, a structure which convokes an object as, not so much a source of anxiety, rather a protection against it. The work of Jacques Lacan on “object relations” serves as the main reference for discussion of the case material.
Ko te ariā “kāinga”, he whakaarahanga mea e taunga ana, heoi anō hoki, ki tā Freud whakaahuatanga tau, he whakaarahanga tipua kē. Ka whakamātauhia tēnei aria i raro i te tauiratanga mai o te whakaaturanga āhua o “wehi”, he anga whakaputanga hau, ehara nei I te whakaputanga anipā, engari ia he pākatitanga kē atu. Ko ngā mahi “hononga pae” a Jacques Lacan te ariā whakapae matua hai tohutoro matapakitanga o te kohinga korero.
