Myslet ze šťastného těla
To think from a happy body
In this article I describe experience which I call experience of the maternal-child body and which is primarily happy and problem-free. I then develop, in more detail, ideas which are born of this experience. Next I attempt to argue that the ideas in question offer a way of thinking the production of sense which eschews the metaphysics of presence, as well as the Lacanian-inspired idea of infinite movement in the order of the symbolic, and perhaps eventually eschews the post-structuralist thought of the infinite reference to significants without any kind of relation to a transcendent significant. I point to aspects that are in common between this description and the ideas of D. Winnicott, and I also put forward two moments in which this description clearly differs from Winnicott’s conception.
