For what Freud states is that the ‘hereditary schema’ makes ‘normal’ experience contain a conditional element of structuring. Like the prohibition of incest (our ‘condition of possibility’) makes love relations within kinship a psychic impossibility. Imaginary forms of compensation result for representations that do not fit within schematized reality (so that when I do fall in love with my niece, fantasizing offers a way out of the conflict).

A ‘fantasme’ is ‘an image set to work in the signifying structure’ (Lacan 2006: 532). It emphasizes both the product (image) and its symbolic production (signifying structure, the Other). So the use of the word fantasy is difficult and tricky. I use the word fantasy, the regular translation of both the German ‘Phantasie’ and the French ‘fantasme’. Nevertheless, I use it – consistent with its use in Kantian, Freudian, and Lacanian theory – with a special interest for its transcendental and unconscious functioning.
