Teleplastic Abduction: Subjectivity in the Age of ART, or Delirium for Psychoanalysis: Commentary on Simon's “Spoken Through Desire”

André Lepecki, Ph.D.

Using the notions of “telepathy” (John Forrester), “teleplasty” (Roger Caillois), and “social choreography” (Andre Hewitt) this essay responds to Tracy L. Simon's analysis of her patient Nora by proposing a critique of subjectivity as predicated on the notion of the individual subject. Through a dialogue with dance studies, performance studies, and the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, a case is made for the symptom to be perceived not as a patient's own (property) but as world-delirium and as delirium of the world. Finally, analysand and analyst are conceived as dancers, incorporating and excorporating each other in the social choreography of an activity whose other name could be “lovemaking.”
