Terapeutyczny recykling/niesamowite powtórzenie
Therapeutic Recycling/Uncanny Repetition
Using a few hints from Lacanian psychoanalysis, the paper attempts to distinguish between two possible attitudes towards repetition in culture. One is the happy recycling of culture propagated by most of postmodernist discourses as the very practice of freedom and whose ultimate incarnation is Joyce's Finnegans Wake, which is, however, the therapeutic freedom of the possible. The other would be an attempt at cultural repetition in Kierkegaardian sense, that is, changing the coordinates of the possible by means of bringing out the uncanny surplus in the familiar and thus introducing a breach in the discursive space which would make room for the impossible to appear within it, as exemplified by the work of Kafka.
