Antigone, Heroin of Psychoanalysis?

In this article Philippe Van Haute challenges Jacques Lacan's Heideggerian reading of Sophocles' Antigone – at least as a paradigmatic example of the ethics of psychoanalysis. Van Haute's key point is that, in Antigone, the only real personal change takes place in Creon after the intervention of blind Tiresias. Thus if the aim of psychoanalysis is some kind of change in the analysand, the hero of Antigone would rather be Creon than Antigone. In a way, Antigone's fascination may have prevented Lacan from finding Tiresias in himself.
