Also strangely unclear is the priority of the equation, whether the objectloss happens because of identiﬁcation or the other way around. ’ The very next sentence states, ‘In this process the object itself is renounced’ (108–9, my emphasis). This ‘identiﬁcation with an object that has been renounced or lost’ (109) generates a chicken-or-egg paradox: is the object lost ﬁrst, and then renounced again in the process of identiﬁcation, or does identiﬁcation itself jettison the object from the subject’s sphere of desire?
