It seems as though there may be at least one desire that we don’t get from the other. At about 17 he says we have a need to be which drives us to imitate. If for the moment I call that ‘need to be’ a desire then we might say we have inherently and built into our nature – prior to any external environment – a desire to desire? We desire to desire after the other.
