Opening with the biblical creation of Eve from the rib of Adam, Tendlarz began her inquiry into feminine jouissance, masculine jouissance, and jouissance of the body beyond the Oedipal frame. The presentation charted the relationship between love, desire, and jouissance at important junctures in Lacan’s work. Tendlarz concluded by referencing Jacques-Alain Miller’s formulation of the ‘One alone’, shifting the focus to jouissance that is opaque to sense and concerns every speaking being.
