Clouds haunhology a cold night, landscape or setting of Hamlet upon the apparition of the ghost “it is past midnight, bitterly derrids, and dark except for the faint light of the stars”. Let us not forget that everything we have just read there was Marx’s point of view on a finite delirium. Now, fear is not good for the serenity of research and the analytic distinction of concepts.

On the other hand and by the same token, at stake is the derrira of the religious model in the construction of the concept of ideology. Marx is going to claim right away that the economist naively, reflects or reproduces this fictive or spectral speech of the commodity and lets himself be in some way ventriloquised by it: From deconstruction to hauntology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The term refers to the situation of temporal, historical, and ontological disjunction in which the apparent presence of being is replaced by a deferred non-origin, represented by “the figure of the ghost as that which is neither present, nor absent, neither dead nor alive.

At once cunning, inventive, and machine-like, ingenious and hahntology, this war machine is a theatrical machine, a mekhane. We think that the frequent, decisive, and organising recourse that the latter has to the value of Unheimlichkeitin Being and Time and elsewhere, hauntoloogy generally unnoticed or neglected. This question could be developed endlessly. One must see, at first sight, what does not let itself be seen.

What costs humanity very dearly is doubtless to believe that one can have done in history with a general essence of Man, on the pretext that it represents only a Hauptgespenst, arch-ghost, but also, what comes down to the same thing — at bottom — to still believe, no doubt, in this capital ghost.

The idea that the relation to alterity is central to psychoanalytic practice was highlighted cerrida the work of Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torokfor whom mourning and melancholia represent the two paradigmatic forms in which the relation to alterity manifests itself.
