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.

Stephanie Metcalfe : What Freud allowed the Hysteric to teach him*

“Freud, the first to consent not to look away nor to investigate elsewhere, the first not to attempt to hide it in psychiatric theory that more or less harmonised with the rest of medical knowledge; the first to follow its consequences with absolute rigour.” So says Michel Foucault in “Madness and Civilisation”.[1] The aim of this paper is to examine and remind ourselves of the way in which the hysteric was essential to Freud’s founding of the technique of psychoanalysis. And to outline Freud’s contention, so succinctly put in ‘A Question of Lay Analysis’ that ‘one cannot run away from oneself’[2].

Helen Sheehan : Aliens, This Way Please

It is fitting that this group New Studies on Hysteria which is hosting this Conference today has had no permanent place of domicile since its inception.
For quite some time, the Milltown Institute offered us a place of refuge but due to its imminent closure we are once again searching for a place in which to work.
Some of you will recognise something of the same kind of situation in which Lacan found himself in Nov. 1963 when he was finally excommunicated (a word he himself uses) from the International Psychoanalytic Association. To be more precise, Lacan’s teaching had been the object of censure and a ban on this teaching ensured that he would never again be sanctioned by the I.P.A. Lacan regarded this as tantamount to excommunication. This is of course a religious...

Helen Sheehan : Searching for the Lost Cause : Freud’s First Steps (towards a theory of Anxiety)1

It is important to remember that we cannot separate theory from practice for Freud and to remember that every discovery Freud has made has in one way or another been influenced not only by his theoretical work but by what was happening in his personal life and this is because, it seems to me, for Freud theory is not something you do – you write about. What you write about are the little threads of significance that go to frame a Life and then we call this theory. In other words, as Lacan insists the unconscious is that which does not stop not writing itself.

Ligia Gomes Víctora [2] : Corpo real, corpo simbólico, corpo imaginário[1]

Quando recebemos alguém para análise, esta pessoa geralmente já vem com queixas sobre seu sofrimento psicológico e, muita vez, físico também. São dores na cabeça, nas costas, no peito, medos, insegurança, tristeza... Enfim, um mal-estar “de corpo e alma”.
A questão é: que corpo é este com que lidamos durante uma análise?

Marie-Astrid Dupret : ¿Los llaman terroristas? Unos jóvenes como tantos otros…[1]

Desde algunos años, la actualidad mediática en Francia y Bélgica sobre todo, focaliza su atención sobre el tema de adolescentes y jóvenes que cometen atentados en lugares públicos y emblemáticos de la posmodernidad, entre los más recientes, el Bataclan de París (noviembre 2015) y el aeropuerto internacional de Bruselas (marzo 2016) o contra personas representativas de la laicidad atea, como los caricaturistas de Charlie Hebdo (enero 2015), actos reivindicados luego por el Estado Islámico. Muchos debates de diversa índole, han nacido alrededor de las causas psicosociales de estas violencias espectaculares y de la personalidad de los perpetradores. En esas discusiones, se observa un cierto antagonismo entre por un lado, los defensores de los valores superiores del Occidente que ven en...

Malachi McCoy : Pre-phobic Anxiety *

“My dear Professor, I am sending you a little more about Hans-but this time, I am sorry to say, material for a case history. ”The boy woke up one morning in tears; asked why he was crying, he said to his mother: “When I was asleep I thought you were gone and I had no Mummy to coax with” [The child’s word for caress. It is therefore,] “An anxiety dream.”
In 1909 the publication of the case-history “caused a great stir and even greater indignation”. Would the findings of a psychoanalysis of a suffering child meet with the same agitations and scorn as Freud’s case history of the analysis and recovery of Little Hans? Or, can we learn from it and find hope? It’s my hope that this paper, rather than giving a chronological account, can remind us of the mental activities driving the...

Ligia Gomes Víctora : CORREIO março 2017 "Sexualidades"

As chamadas fórmulas da sexuação não surgiram de repente na obra de Lacan, mas foram sendo construídas, tijolo por tijolo, durante anos em seus seminários e escritos.
Talvez se possa localizar a pedra angular desta construção mais claramente no texto A significação do falo, de 1958. Este é um texto fundamental na álgebra lacaniana, embora as expressões ainda não fossem escritas ali em forma de algoritmos, as relações dos sexos com o falo estão todas apresentadas.
Lacan (1958) começa esta conferência afirmando que “o complexo de castração inconsciente tem uma função de nó”. Não se trata de um nó tal como seria abordado nos seminários dos anos 70, ou seja, enquanto cadeia borromeana, mas sim no sentido plano, como um point capitoné ou um cruzamento de pontos. Lacan ressalta...

Ligia Gomes Víctora : Texto para CORREIO APPOA março-2017 "O nó do amor"

O que eu apresento a vocês hoje é um trabalho em desenvolvimento. Uma questão que ficou a partir dos nossos estudos no Cartelão e no Seminário de Topologia da APPOA, que eu pensei em dividir com vocês, justamente para avançarmos nesta discussão, pois Lacan a deixou em aberto e não foi devidamente desenvolvida depois. [3]
O que eu apelidei de nó do amor, seria a maneira de se manterem juntos um homem e uma mulher, ou um casal qualquer de seres. Dois seres heterodoxos, como sujeito e objeto de desejo, que, como Erastés e Eroménon de Platão, podem trocar de posição um com o outro, num movimento de gangorra – onde: ora um é o amante e idolatra o amado – que fica se fazendo – ora é o amado que cai para a posição de apaixonado, suplicante pelo outro. E o que antes amava é agora o amado...
