This presentation poses the question of “meaning” in James Joyce’s “epiphanies”; not what they mean, as such, but rather, the type of meaning that is at stake when it comes to epiphanies. It suggests that the type of meaning concerned relates to what Lacan is intimating when he plays on the term, j’ouï sens and when he says that this j’ouï-sens is the same thing as “to hear a meaning”.
