Truth Pagel I 71
Truth/Lacan: is guaranteed from elsewhere than from reality: from speaking. It is neither clearly comprehensible, nor knowable. We can only take note of it, as far as we are speaking to express our desires, which are never wholly satisfied, and refer to the wishes of the others.
I, 119f
Speech/Lacan: no longer dual I-you-relationship, but place for a third: the big other large-A.
Silence: condition for "full speech".
Original speaking: where the language still asks and does not answer objectively yet.
Speaking/Lacan: "The other is the place where in the connection with what hears, the I, which speaks, is constituted; and what he says one is already an answer, whereby the other deciding via his hearing whether he spoke or not."
To not allow oneself to be disturbed by the accents which the ego (moi) sets, but to perceive the appeal of the (great) other great-A beyond the (small) other small a.
Truth: lies neither on the side of one nor on the other, but certainly "between" the speakers.
