Alexandra Triandafillidis : Eutherian didyme

This paper questions the longing for completeness which is lurking behind the manifold so to say ” love experience “. Starting from an heterogeneous documentation, a fiction is here suggested swaying the traditional representation of the mother-child symbiosis towards a representation of the completeness child-placenta : i.e. the ” Eutherian didyme ” becoming the priviledged metaphorical support enabling to suggest the absolute of completeness.

Such a forever lost didyme feeds an unquenchable quest. The companions of the love experience, whatever it may be, appear to be imperfect substitutes, cathexed with an unattainable mission. They are always more or less ” imaginary “.
