Overcoming onto-theology is not just a conceptual problem for Chauvet. It also has a deep psychological dimension and therefore necessitates a conversion of desire as much as a transformation of thought. Although Chauvet’s thought is at odds with the “linguisterie” of Lacan as indicated in the previous chapter, he nevertheless is greatly influenced by Lacan’s analysis of the subject’s initiation into the symbolic order. This psychoanalytic dimension of his thought has been generally overlooked. It is however important because certain insights can be drawn from comparing “overcoming” onto-theology with acquiescing to the law of language and breaking from the imaginary order. Furthermore, the emergence of the subject in language and the process of symbolic exchange lies at the heart of Chauvet’s understanding of the sacramental tradition.
