Vincent Cornalba, Jacques Dayan: sensoriality’s dual purpose

The use of the sensorial is twofold, involving binding and unbinding effects. The idea of trans-figuration lends itself to the representation of a play of figurations in which the other is a necessary partner. The insistent way the body intervenes in adolescence cannot be interpreted entirely as a glitch; it can just as well be seen as a lead-in and may appear as an operator within the very process of subjectivation.

Adolescence, 2014, 32, 4, 687-693.
