{{Top}}misrecognition|méconnaissance{{Bottom}}
===Translation===Translator, Alan [[Sheridan]], has decided to retain the French [[word]]. The [[Frenchsense]] term ''is of a "failure to recognize", or "misconstruction". The [[méconnaissanceconcept]]'' corresponds roughly is central to the [[EnglishLacan]] words "'s [[Méconnaissance|misunderstandingthinking]]" and ", since, for him, [[Méconnaissance|misrecognitionknowledge]]"(''conaissance'') is inextricably bound up with ''méconnaissance''.
The [[French]] term ''[[méconnaissance]]'' corresponds roughly to the [[English]] [[words]] "[[Méconnaissance|misunderstanding]]" and "[[Méconnaissance|misrecognition]]". However, the [[French]] term is usually [[left ]] untranslated when translating [[Lacan]] into [[English]] in order to show its close [[relationship ]] with the term ''[[connaissance]]'' ("[[knowledge]]").
===Neurotic Self-Knowledge===Thus, in the [[imaginary]] [[order]], [[knowledge|self-knowledge]] (''me-connaissance'') is synonymous with [[méconnaissance|misunderstanding]] (''[[méconnaissance]]''), because the [[process ]] by which the [[ego]] is formed in the [[mirror stage]] is at the same [[time ]] the institution of [[alienation]] from the [[symbolic ]] determination of [[being]].
===Paranoid Delusions===As well as being the [[structure]] of ordinary [[neurotic]] [[knowledge|self-knowledge]], ''[[méconnaissance]]'' is also the [[structure]] of [[paranoiac]] [[delusions]], which are described in [[terms]] of a ''[[méconnaissance|méconnaissance systématique de la reéalité]]''.<ref>{{L}} "[[Works of Jacques Lacan|Some Reflections on the Ego]]," ''Int. J. [[Psycho]]-[[Anal]].'', vol. 34, 1953 [1951b]. p. 12</ref>
As well as being ===Paranoiac Knowledge===This [[structural]] homology between the ordinary [[structureconstitution]] of ordinary the [[ego]] and [[paranoiac]] [[neuroticdelusions]] is what leads [[knowledge|self-knowledgeLacan]], ''to describe all [[méconnaissanceknowledge]]('' is also the [[structureconnaissance]] of ''), in both [[paranoiacneurosis]] and [[delusionspsychosis]], which are described in terms of a ''as "[[méconnaissanceknowledge|méconnaissance systématique de la reéalitéparanoiac knowledge]]''.<ref>{{L}} 1951b. p.12</ref>"
===Ignorance===
''[[Méconnaissance]]'' is to be distinguished from [[knowledge|ignorance]], which is one of the [[three]] [[affect|passions]]. Whereas [[knowledge|ignorance]] is a [[affect|passion]] for the [[absence]] of [[knowledge]], ''[[méconnaissance]]'' is an [[imaginary]] [[misrecognition]] of a [[symbolic]] [[knowledge]] (''[[savoir]]'') that the [[subject]] does possess somewhere.
This structural homology between the ordinary constitution of the <blockquote>Misrecognition is not [[egoignorance]] . Misrecognition represents a certain organization of affirmations and [[paranoiac]] [[delusions]] negations, to which the subject is what leads [[Lacan]] to describe all [[attached. Hence it cannot be conceived without correlate knowledge]] (''[[connaissance]]'')... There must surely be, in both [[neurosis]] and [[psychosis]]behind his misrecognition, as "[[a kind of knowledge|paranoiac knowledge]]of what there is to misrecognize.<ref>{{S1}} p."167</ref></blockquote>
--==Ego Formation==Again, this applies both in the ordinary [[construction]] of the [[ego]] and in [[paranoia]]. In the former [[case]], the [[ego]] is basically a [[Méconnaissance|misrecognition]] of the [[symbolic]] determinants of [[subjectivity]] (the [[discourse]] of the [[Other]], the [[unconscious]]). In the latter case, [[paranoiac]] [[delusions]] always imply a [[Méconnaissance|recognition]] (''[[Méconnaissance|reconnaissance]]''), as is evident in [[Méconnaissance|systematic misunderstanding]] (''méconnaissance systématique''), where it must clearly be admitted that that which is denied is in some way [[Méconnaissance|recognized]] (''reconnu'').<ref>{{Ec}} p.165</ref>

Whereas [[knowledge|ignorance]] is a [[affect|passion]] for the [[absence]] of [[knowledge]], ''[[méconnaissance]]'' is an [[imaginary]] [[misrecognition]] of a [[symbolic]] [[knowledge]] (''[[savoir]]'') tha tthe [[subject]] does possess somewhere.==References==<div style="font-size:11px" class="references-small"><references/></div>

Again, this applies both in the ordinary construction of the [[ego]] and in [[paranoia]]. In the former case, the [[ego]] is basically a misrecognition of the [[symbolic]] determinants of [[subjectivity]] (the [[discourse]] of the [[Other]], the [[unconscious]]). In the latter case, [[paranoiac]] [[delusions]] always imply a recognition (''reconnaissance''), as is evident in systematic misunderstanding (méconnaissance systématique), where it must clearly be admitted that that which is denied is in some way recognized (''reconnu'').<ref>{{Ec}} p.165</ref>__NOTOC__
