本論文旨在以拉岡精神分析的觀點來討論瑪格麗特‧愛特伍 (Margaret Atwood) 的小說《末世男女》(Oryx and Crake)。在小說中,克雷科因為對人類慾望的厭惡而毀滅人類,並創造出一個沒有慾望的世界,他相信他所創造出的世界將會是個不再有苦難的世界。然而,這個新世界卻變成反面烏托邦(dystopia)。本論文以拉岡理論的概念探討克雷科的真實層倫理(the ethics of the Real),可怕的暴力便是由此產生。首先,以小幻物(object a)的概念說明人類慾望的不可滿足性。為了要消除人類慾望,克雷科擁有驅使他消滅人類和實現他理想世界的力量,這個理想世界顯示出真實層倫理的問題。克雷科認為他在追求聖善物(the Supreme Good),然而事實上,他是遵循淫穢超我指令(obscene superego imperative)去追求他的理想,這是他的潛意識絕爽(jouissance)的問題。最後,因為克雷科在創造新世界時企圖將他的潛意識慾望(unconscious desire)普世化,所以他所創造的世界逆轉成為反面烏托邦。

This thesis mainly analyzes Margaret Atwood's novel Oryx and Crake (2003) from the perspective of Lacanian psychoanalysis. In the novel, due to his hatred of excessive human desire, the character Crake eliminates human beings and creates a world without desire. He believes that the world he creates will be an ideal world where the creatures live without suffering. However, after his vision has been realized, the new world turns out to be a dystopia. This thesis applies Lacanian concepts to analyze Crake's ethics of the Real that generates horrible violence. In the first place, Lacan's idea, object a, is employed to demonstrate the insatiable nature of human desire. Since Crake wants to eliminate human desire, he has the force to destroy human beings and to accomplish his ideal world that shows the problem of the ethics of the Real. He supposes what he pursues is the Supreme Good; yet, he is actually commanded by obscene superego imperative to pursue his ideal, which, in fact, is the problem of his unconscious jouissance. In the end, Crake's ideal world inversely becomes a dystopia, for he universalizes his unconscious desire in creating the new world.
