Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Desire: desire is a linguistically formulated attitude or an attitude that can be formulated for imagined or actually given situations or objects. It may be desired to possess an object or to realize or terminate states or situations.

Pagel I 63
Desire/Lacan: wants more than real saturation: recognition and love.
Pagel I 64
Desire/Lacan: the desire flows into the language. Mother is giving more than food. When the subject entrusts the need to the mother, the kind of neediness changes in a retroactive manner. The primary need turns into the claim to the other. Insatiability. The child, nourished with the highest measure of love, refuses food. It's about the symbol.
I 65
Desire: Dialectic: Desire wants to be acknowledged! Neither appetite for satisfaction nor claim to love, but rather the difference arising from the subtraction of the satisfaction of the claim.
I 68
Desire: neither the subject nor the other can be content to be subjects of need or objects of love, but solely to be a governor for the cause of desire.
Passion: its scope is that the desire of the human is the desire of the other.
I 75
Desire: behind each lurks a new, never finished series. Irreducible alienation. Lacan: This is the real reason for the "discomfort in culture" (Freud). Lacan: not "lack of having", but "withdrawal from being".
