In desire, I always form a relation with the object, because I cannot realize my own desire in myself, I must point to an other, be it a person or a thing.Here I am the desirer and the object is the desired, and the relationship between me and the object becomes that between the desirer and the desired.S article | fu-chun peng is not what we just shows the literature, but we did not say what is literature.However, literature as the art of language has given us a hint that it requires us to reach literature itself in the realm of language.So we still need to ask questions about language in general.The inquiry into the nature of language must be transformed into the inquiry into speech, for language is the collection of all speech phenomena.As we know, to the question “Who speaks?” three answers have been given, namely, God, nature and man, who are three different speakers.No matter which of the three speakers is the most fundamental, they all have one thing in common, setting up a speaker before he speaks.But the talker is the talker because he speaks.So it is not the speaker who defines speech, but rather speech defines the speaker.Speech, as determinative, appears in speech, i.e., discourse.The fundamental question then is not who is talking, but what is being said.There is much to be said of language, but the main thing is desire, tool and truth.The language of desire is man’s original language, because man exists as a biological, economic and linguistic existence, and biological existence is his first direct reality.Biological existence is the instinct of man’s body, his flesh and blood.Although there are some specious similarities between human instinct and animal instinct, there is a tiny but impassable gap between them at the root.The animal’s instinct is its whole activity, whereas man’s instinct is only a part of it, and interacts with the rest.Therefore, man is not an ordinary animal from the beginning, and there is no so-called animal nature.The description of the human body as animal nature is only an analogy.Therefore, the connection and distinction between human and animal do not have important significance.As far as the basic instinct itself is concerned, it is the basic need of the human body and the ability to realize this need.The basic need of man is the self-preservation of man’s existence.On the one hand, it is the existence of individual life, which is manifested as the pursuit of diet and so on;On the other hand is the reproduction of racial life, which is reflected in the satisfaction of reproduction.As human’s natural desire, instinct also derives human’s social desire and spiritual desire from itself, such as power, fame and interest and so on.The basic expression of desire language is: I desire something, that is, I want something.In desire, I always form a relation with the object, because I cannot realize my own desire in myself, I must point to an other, be it a person or a thing.Here I am the desirer and the object is the desired, and the relationship between me and the object becomes that between the desirer and the desired.
