Psychoanalysis

Nous souhaitons que les travaux des enseignants de l'EPHEP soient accessibles au plus grand nombre de lecteurs de ce site, qui ne sont pas toujours familiarisés autant qu'ils le voudraient avec la langue française. Dans ce cadre, nous mettons à leur disposition un certain nombre de textes, portant sur la psychopathologie ou la psychanalyse, ou encore sur de grands problèmes soulevés par la psychiatrie classique. Nous ne pouvons, en effet, dénoncer les classifications internationales sans présenter à nos lecteurs les moyens de les critiquer.

Terry Ball : Psychoanalysis: a mapping out, turning the symbolic inside out[1]

This paper considers the notion of psychoanalysis as a ‘mapping out’ which was put forward by Lacan in his 24th Seminar, L’insu que sait de l’une bévue s’aile à mourre. The implied synonyms for ‘mapping out’, such as, ‘identifying with one’s symptom’ and ‘turning inside out’, are highlighted so as to gain some insight into this notion. How one is to understand and situate the symbolic intervention of the analyst and interpretation as a cut are also explored, as are the notions of the symptom – a symbolic representation with an effect in the Real and the possibility of dissolving this effect. Lacan’s toric depictions of these ideas are also presented.

Monica Errity : Revi(siting) repetition*

In The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis Lacan makes the following statement about repetition; ‘What is repeated is always something that occurs… as if by chance’.1 He then goes on to define chance as, ‘the real as encounter - the encounter in so far as it may be missed, in so far as it is essentially the missed encounter’.2 Taken in isolation these words appear enigmatic and bewildering leaving us wondering how they are to be understood. Fortunately, Lacan doesn’t leave us completely in the dark. His frequent references to Freud suggest that before we can begin to understand what he, Lacan, is saying about repetition, we need to revisit Freud and revise, go over again (wiederholen) what he has said on the subject.
The issue of repetition had been on Freud’s mind from...

Charles Melman : Phobia

We are going to take up again, in a very precise way, the elements which for Lacan are the organisers of a phobia. We are going to do this by a demonstration, a series of assertions which are really unique to Lacan and which will among other things put into practice this chart which we have already seen, a chart which is comprised of the permutations of the real, the symbolic and the imaginary,

Stephanie Metcalfe : Inside bungalow 3: a psychoanalytic perspective[1]

This paper aims to look at the pressing question of how we care for vulnerable members of our society. The shock and outrage that followed the airing of a Prime Time investigation programme, portraying residents with severe disabilities being routinely abused, has prompted questions in relation to what light psychoanalysis can shine on scandals such as the one exposed in Aras Attracta. When confronted with extreme vulnerability we are reminded of our own helplessness, what Freud termed Hilflosigkeit and are therefore faced with something of the Real. It seems essential to explore, from a psychoanalytic perspective, the effect of this kind of work on the subjectivity of carers and clinicians. The unconscious must be acknowledged in this area of work, in order to inform the therapeutic...

Johanna Vennemann : Il cerchio magico

La madre, quando il piccolo Bert ha 3 anni e mezzo lo trova con la mano al pene. "Se fai questo, faccio venire il Dr.A. e lui ti taglierà… il fapipi. - minaccia - con che allora farai pipi ?"
"Con il popò" risponde Bertl senza il minimo senso di colpa.
"Ti ho forse mai picchiato?" chiede il padre "Oh, sì" dice Bertl "Non è vero - quando?" "Stamattina " ammonisce il piccolo e il padre si ricorda che Bertl, la mattina, del tutto inavvertitamente gli aveva spinto la testa nella pancia (in den Bauch gestossen) e che lui, di riflesso, gli aveva dato uno scapaccione con la mano.

Johanna Vennemann : Der magische Kreis.

Im Alter von 3 ½ Jahren wird der kleine Bertl von der Mutter mit der Hand am Penis getroffen (Cf Freud: betroffen). Sie droht: „Wenn Du das machst, lass ich den Dr. A. kommen, der schneidet dir den Wiwimacher ab. Womit wirst du dann Wiwi machen?“ „Mit dem Popo“ antwortet Bertl ohne das geringste Schuldbewusstsein.
„Habe ich dich denn je … geschlagen?“ fragt der Vater. „O ja, du hast mich geschlagen“ sagt Bertl. „Das ist nicht wahr – wann denn?“ „Heute morgen“ mahnt der Kleine und der Vater erinnert sich, dass Bertl ihn ganz unerwartet mit dem Kopf in den Bauch gestoßen, worauf er ihm wie reflektorisch einen Schlag mit der Hand gegeben hatte.

Albert Llussà i Torra : Freud’s observations in the “Three Essays” (1904) confirmed in “Analysis of a Phobia in a Five-Year-Old Boy” (1909)

Freud’s case history Analysis of a Phobia in a Five-Year Old Boy[2] describes the course of illness and recovery of a phobia in a five-year old boy (Hans). It is based on the observation made by the boy’s father, who sent regular reports to Freud on the child’s development in response to the request made by Freud to his pupils and friends that they would collect observations of the sexual life of children. Hans’ parents were among Freud’s closest adherents.

Francisco Fernandes : Infinito Nada - o Apostar de Pascal

Pascal, ele mesmo, resume o sentido do “apostar”:
Para entender as regras das partilhas, a primeira coisa que é necessário considerar é que o dinheiro que o jogadores colocaram em jogo já não lhes pertence, porque eles renunciaram à sua propriedade; mas em compensação receberam o direito de esperar o que a Fortuna lhes poderia dar, conforme as condições com as quais, de início, concordaram.

Antonio Carlos Rocha : A paixão do objeto segundo Clarice

Vou lhes falar de um texto literário. É A paixão segundo G. H., de Clarice Lispector, livro bastante conhecido na literatura moderna brasileira. Vou seguir o escrito bem de perto, sempre à margem da palavra de G.H., para pôr em relevo a clareza de Clarice sobre o tema de nosso colóquio, a maneira como ela trata o sujeito em sua submissão ao significante, ao nome, à imagem, ao objeto.

Eduardo de Carvalho Rocha : A atualidade da instituição psiquiátrica (1)

Esta é uma ocasião especial pois estamos aqui reunidos para dar início a este Seminário em que comemoramos os 50 anos de existência de Jurujuba e nos dispomos a tentar delimitar alguns dos desafios que temos adiante em nosso futuro. É até compreensível que não se queira mais comemorar a existência de hospitais psiquiátricos em face dos destinos desastrosos em que a grande maioria se embaraçou. No entanto, a falência de certos modos de institucionalização não quer dizer que podemos dispensar essas instituições. Por exemplo, a imperfeição e os conflitos dos regimes democráticos não nos induzem a pensar que a democracia deva ser abolida. Do mesmo jeito que os graves problemas que temos no sistema de segurança pública não significa que devamos renunciar a cuidar da segurança do cidadão....
