"Could you bear the life you have?" Lacan and The Fine Art of Existentialist Small Talk



"Death belongs to the realm of faith. You're right to believe that you will die. It sustains you. If you didn't believe it, could you bear the life you have? If we couldn't totally rely on the certainty that it will end, how could you bear all this?"

Jacques Lacan
