Anita G. Schmukler

Moss explores motives of revenge, forgiveness, blessing, and curse from a Lacanian perspective. He employs two stories, one clinical and one biblical (Noah and Ham) to illustrate his point of view. Moss's notion is that revenge, forgiveness, and love have the "unattainable" aims of finding reconciliation with "traumatizing figures of the oedipus complex." The aim is unattainable because the effects of trauma cannot be obliterated.
