Abstract

This chapter summarises several important propositions Chenyang Wang has developed throughout this book. The first proposition is to think of the notion of time in Lacan’s work beyond a one-dimensional, unitary category. In other words, a singular ontological ground on which the conception of time can be theorised does not exist in Lacan’s work. The second proposition is that the notion of time in Lacan’s work is characterised by a radical sense of otherness. The third proposition is that the notion of time in Lacan’s work offers a genuine appreciation of subjectivity in a process of becoming that goes against the logic of spatialisation. The fourth proposition is that the notion of time in Lacan’s work contributes to a new epistemology of sexed subjectivity. The conclusion also indicates the direction this study may possibly open up for future work.
