Abstract

Abstract:

The quandaries of Freud's second metapsychological model, fully exposed in "Beyond the Pleasure Principle," are analyzed via his analogy of the amoeba and its pseudopodium. Those quandaries emerge, on the one hand, as the problem of an inanimate that always already "mobilizes" the animate, and, on the other hand, as the impossible origin of what Derrida describes as autodeictic autobiography, understood here as life.
