Christian Fierens - To move or not to move


From a Group’s Symptom to a Transmission Through the Sinthome


The transmission of psychoanalysis is impossible through the group as it always implies identification to an ideal. It is only possible through the movements of what we presume to be true. The Lacanian topology has to cope with these movements. The immobile Freudian symptom becomes then the constantly moving « sinthome ». There we find the true transmission of psychoanalysis.
