Qu'est-ce que l'objectivation en psychanalyse? Sept lectures de Freud

Translated title of the contribution: What is objectivation in psychoanalysis?: Seven readings of Freud

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This work gathers a series of seven philosophical readings of Freud's texts. Each one of them interrogates the processes of objectivation in psychoanalysis, that is to say, the possibility of a formation of objects of knowledge from psychic materials of the subjects engaged in a psychoanalysis. Each reading is also a a path in which are made clear the relations established by this peculiar way of self-knowledge between truth and love, but also between science and poetics. From these singular relations derives a particular logic that allows us to ask whether there is any objectivity of the psychoanalytic knowledge at the light of the procedures really implied in the clinical setting.
