Abstract [en]

"Narrative of self, guilt and reconciliation. Reflections on the socalled "deconstruction" of the self." Relating to presentday ideas of self as narrative, notions of "the death of the subject" and the Lacanian view of "the imaginary self" the article tries to show that most of these ideas tend to remain "abstract ideas", basically not changing our everyday ways of being and relating to "the world". It is further argued that the lacanian view of the self as it is often presented is self-contradictory since based on claims to a certain "wholistic" and "veridical" knowledge which the very theory excludes as being impossible given the way the imaginary self functions. It is argued that a giving up of certain assumptions behind the mentioned strands of thinking may open for liberation rather than "tragedy" (as for example in Lacan) or "practical standstill" (as in the case of "theoretical deconstructions of the self".)
