“Desire (the desiring subject) does not come first, to be followed by an identification that would allow the desire to be fulfilled. What comes first is a tendency towards identification, a primordial tendency which then gives rise to a desire...; identification brings the desirous subject into being, not the other way around.” – Mikkel Borch-Jakobson, Professor of Comparative Literature and French at the University of Washington.
