In ‘From the History of an Infantile Neurosis’ (the ‘Wolf Man’), Freud states: the phylogentically inherited schemata, which, like the categories of philosophy, are concerned with the business of ‘placing’ the impressions derived from actual experience. I am inclined to take the view that they are precipitates from the history of human civilization. The Oedipus complex, which comprises a child’s relation to his parents, is one of them – is, in fact, the best known member of the class. Wherever experiences fail to fit in with the hereditary schema, they become remodelled in the imagination .
From his work ‘On Narcissism: An Introduction’ (1914) onward, Freud defines narcissism as an investment of libido in the ego. But Freud does not clarify how this investment comes about, and thus leaves open the question concerning the ‘mysterious’ emergence of the ego. Lacan gives an explanation by claiming that a primitive version of a unified self-experience occurs when the infant recognizes itself for the first time in the mirror. Between six and eighteen months the infant shows, by means of the illuminative mimicry of the Aha-erlebnis, that it recognizes the image in the mirror as itself.
The most general rule is that of the sequence: we always experience things in time 28 ‘IMAGINATION’ AS MEDIUM consecutively. Therefore, it may not surprise us that time is the primary scheme: ‘Time is the a priori formal condition of all appearances in general’ (Kant 1789/1996: A 34). Time is the form of the inner intuition. Space is the form of all outer intuitions: when we perceive something outside us, it is in space. However, for Kant, space already belongs to the inner state: whether a representation corresponds to an object in outer reality or not, it is basically a representation of an inner intuition that has time as its form.
