The reading I have done so far of Lacan's sentence with its three-part series seems forced and arbitrary. It is the paragraph following the sentence we have just read which confers the signification I am discussing. It is in this next paragraph that Lacan makes reference to Civilt"zation and its Dtscontents. That reference leads us to the Freud quotation which shaped our distinction between male and female role. The first sentence in the paragraph, the sentence immediately following the one we just were reading, also has three parts; and, more strikingly, the word 'voire', a relatively unusual adverb, appears in both sentences between the second and third part.
