Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The way of Freud: obsolete, outdated, reductive, outdated ... A "return" to Freud, still crucial to question-refound its paradigm, is difficult to share in the very field of psychoanalysis. "The sons of Freud are tired" in the realm of the DSM, where efforts to make subjectivity measurable gather scientific applause, but little effect. And so, herr Freud, what to say about his unverifiable results, the failures of his cases, his unobjectable constructions, mixed - who knows! - with some of his unacknowledged ghost ...? If psychoanalysis is not a 'good practice' of shared standards, a cure that ... does not cure is still acceptable. What spreads healing and therapeutic outcome and that impudently declares itself "interminable"? According to a mischievous aphorism, "disease of which it claims to be therapy"? The volume interrogates some passages of the Freudian corpus, to discover its well alive today: the trajectory of a question, which Freud inflexibly builds, with which it defines a new field, conceptual and practical, that of a subject built around a lack, between desire and enjoyment. Field of an ethic. The challenge is that psychoanalysis can still address the question of the clinician of today, struggling with a wild question, without a subject, and together with his fierce reduction in the millstone of unquestionable enjoyments, ever more deadly: the discourse of care votes the irreducible singularity of the subject to the equivalence / standardization / exchangeability of the goods, to make it a "pure consumer", caught in the circuit without respite from the products, out of bond. How to reach the structure? How to deal with the loss? Returning to Freud today, to the realism with which he considers a disturbing beyond the balancing principle of pleasure, updates the point that psychoanalysis can and therefore must play today, according to the civil implications of its clinic, of its ethics.
