Guy Le Gaufey - The Logical Basis of Analytic Solitude


Torn between solitude and associative gregariousness, the analyst is trapped in a powerful paradox that Lacan described when he wrote: ‘The analysts are the scientists of a knowledge they cannot share’. When one gets a clue about that, the ocean of clinical vignettes (most of them, not-all) can be seen as a decoy that is beneficial only to the psycho(patho)logist or the doctor. Not-all of the analyst is a clinician.
