CHAPTER 6

 

The Structure of the Psychoanalytic Discourse, is Interpretation

 

Christian Fierens

 

BETWEEN MEANING AND ABSENCE, THE FLICKERING OF SENSE

 

The psychoanalytic discourse has no stuff, no consistency outside the established discourses. What is neither an hysterical discourse, a magisterial discourse nor an academic discourse is quite simply not a discourse. The discourse of science is inscribed in the hysterical discourse, the capitalist discourse is inscribed in the magisterial discourse, the psychological discourse is inscribed in the academic discourse, etc. Psychoanalytic discourse resists being preferentially inscribed in any one whatsoever of these three established discourses. And it nevertheless cannot ever escape from them on pain of losing all consistency.
