How do we psychoanalysts, first and foremost concerned with the Unconscious, go about thinking about consciousness? And why should we be interested in the first place? The author's answer is simply this: because there is no talk regarding the unconscious if not from the standpoint of consciousness. In answering this, we are already, on the one hand, linking consciousness with language and speech, and Antonio Semi elegantly shows how the figures of discourse teach us a lot about the interface between consciousness and the unconscious.
