This week, we go beyond the pleasure principle to explore the concept of jouissance, made famous by iconic French psychoanalyst, Jacques Lacan. It reveals the paradox of indulgence, revealing the human propensity for risk, hurt and excess, going against common, taken for granted assumptions that we are only motivated towards pleasure and well being.
