Abstract

Relation of the problem of the Wish and political practices has been demonstrated, causes of urgency of the basic plots by Marquis de Sade and reception of the basic philosophic symbols of is discourse (sovereignty, excess, transgression) in creative work of philosophers of the 20th century, first of all G. Bataille, have been analyzed. The author specially accentuated the revealing of synthesis of the conception of the Wish by de Sade and S. Freud in the school of J. Lacan and putting this problem into the sphere of Political on the example of excessive perversions of Power and Rebellion as Transgression in S. Žižek. It is shown that the conditions for production of Symbolic and the basis for public Agreement have been completely destructed in contemporary Ukraine after the Restoration-2010, as a result it is the field of opposition of two kinds of sovereignty — the obscene orgy of violence excess on the part of Power and liberating transgression of Rebellion, the Orange revolution of 2004 being its ideal-typical incarnation.
