X avec Y

This will be a collective blog, where I'll post whatever is sent to me.

The point here is a compendium of X avec Y couples, departing from Lacan's "Kant Avec Sade," in which y is the "truth of" x. Or, as I prefer it, the symptom that reveals the full extension of the logic of x which x itself is incapable of bearing out. Here's Žižek's take on this.

What is the point of this collection? Because I find this formulation - or thought-form, if we like - capable of being at once quite funny and quite productive. The work of odd coupling thinks linkages, unholy ones if done correctly, that track out histories and lineages we might miss otherwise.

Send me your pairings, and they will appear here.
