Sample text

It aims for the internal coherence of the analytic experience. Freud reserved the task of construction for himself guéguen || Discretion of the Analyst || 17 and left that of remembering to the analysand; for him, to construct meant to assure oneself of the truth of the analysis. This operation targets at least one aspect of truth, that of internal coherence. To construct is to assure oneself of consistency, of rules of deduction. This is why, in analysis, the construction and elaboration of the axiom of the fundamental fantasy are homogeneous with one another.

Freud laid down foundations that have perhaps been slightly forgotten today. If the unconscious interprets (interweaving jouissance and sense in its formations), it also decides the outcome of any intervention of the analyst. It is the unconscious that indicates whether or not the analyst was able to touch the cause of desire. Freud noted this in particular in relation to dreams: it matters little whether they lie or tell the truth, whether the analysand lies, whether he accepts or refuses the analyst’s intervention.

The letter is not an imprint, and Lacan is precise about this. Contrary to what Freud says in “The Mystic Writing Pad” where, departing from the inscription or from the instance of the letter in the unconscious, he speaks about it as printing with these little tools, slates said to be magic that children are no longer familiar with today—they have computer screens.
