THE LETTER 62 Summer 2016, pages 1-18

 

CHAPTER 5


The Sense of the Psychoanalytic Discourse


The Comfort and Impossibility of the Psychoanalytic Group

 

Each discourse brings into play a social bond without which it would not be a discourse.

 

What social bond for the psychoanalytic discourse?

 

It would be quite natural to define this social bond as a group, namely as a set of persons (personnes) united around an object, an event or a project that brings them together.  The social bond proper to psychoanalysis would define the place that the persons take up with respect to psychoanalysis and the question of the unconscious.  The psychoanalytic discourse would thus group all the arrangements (arrangements for the treatment, for supervision, arrangements for theory and practice, intra- and inter-associative arrangements, etc.) which would give to each one his place in this group project.
