Abstract

Although he is best known as the founder of existential psychiatry - Daseinanalyse - with which he revolutionized the approach to mental illness based on an original appropriation of conceptual tools from the work of Husserl and Heidegger, the Swiss psychiatrist and philosopher Ludwig Binswanger engaged in a fruitful debate with Freud, whose theses were essential for the initiation and formation of his own thinking. In a series of texts devoted to psychoanalysis, Binswanger addressed a considerable number of critical remarks to the central role that the concept of drive plays in the work of his master and friend, while considering, on the other hand, what the significance of the theses on the pulsation of psychic life has of decisive importance for the understanding of humanity. Without ever hiding his admiration for the scientist and genius thinker whose disciple he wanted to be for a long time - and whose correspondent he was for thirty years (1908-1938) - the author of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Psychiatry (1920), Learning by Experience, Understanding, interpreting in psychoanalysis (1926), Freud and the constitution of clinical psychiatry (1936), The Freudian conception of man in the light of anthropology and My way to Freud (1957) will not cease to point out the limits of the psychoanalytical doctrine that have gradually pushed him away.
