Qu’est-ce qu'une place

On occupe l. a. position où un acte vous pousse comme ça, de droite ou de gauche, de bric ou de broc.
Il s’est trouvé des circonstances qui étaient telles que ce à quoi, à vrai dire, je ne me croyais pas du tout destiné,
eh bien, il a fallu que j’en prenne l. a. corde en major. […]
Il y a les locations dont j’ai parlé tout d’abord, les locations topologiques, les locations dans l’ordre de l’essence,
et puis il y a les areas dans le monde. Ça s’acquiert en général du fait de l. a. bousculade.
Tous autant que vous êtes, avec un peu de likelihood, vous finirez toujours par occuper une certaine position.
Ça ne va pas plus loin.
Jacques Lacan

Qu'est-ce qu'une position ? est une tentative d'illustrer et d'ouvrir l. a. query que l'on se pose, plus particulièrement aujourd'hui, quand on vient demander l'aide du psychanalyste, mais aussi dans d'autres events de l. a. vie : l'impression de ne pas vraiment avoir sa position, de n'être «à sa place» nulle half, le sentiment d'être toujours plus ou moins à côté de soi, déplacé.
La vie que l'on s'est construite peut être réussie - mais on n'y est pas : le désir est ailleurs. Où ? À quel endroit que l'on ne voit pas, à quelle position qu'il serait peut-être easy de prendre ? Mais qu'est-ce qu'une position ?

«Que serait-ce qu'une position si un rêve ne pouvait l'occuper, et s'y affairer [. .. ] ? » Pourquoi poser los angeles query si c'est pour nous lâcher dans los angeles pénombre du «tâtonnement» ? Voilà sans doute le yet recherché par le psychanalyste Michel Gribinski, directeur de los angeles revue Penser/Rêver, dans ce beau livre, déstabilisant et prégnant, qui «parle» de lui-même plus qu'il ne «dit» quelque selected.

Sample text

This is unfortunately the fate of metaphysical ideas. [66] Today it is a real problem what on earth such ideas can mean. The world—so far as it has not completely turned its back on tradition—has long ago stopped wanting to hear a “message”; it would rather be told what the message means. 59 The words that resound from the pulpit are incomprehensible and cry for an explanation. How has the death of Christ brought us redemption when no one feels redeemed? In what way is Jesus a God-man and what is such a being?

The Word,” he says, “took on complete manhood, as it were in its fulness: the soul and body of a man. ” 17 [72] The God-image in man was not destroyed by the Fall but was only damaged and corrupted (“deformed”), and can be restored through God’s grace. The scope of the integration is suggested by the descensus ad inferos, the descent of Christ’s soul to hell, its work of redemption embracing even the dead. The psychological equivalent of this is the integration of the collective unconscious which forms an essential part of the individuation process.

To the extent that the integrated contents are parts of the self, we can expect this influence to be considerable. Their assimilation augments not only the area of the field of consciousness but also the importance of the ego, especially when, as usually happens, the ego lacks any critical approach to the unconscious. In that case it is easily overpowered and becomes identical with the contents that have been assimilated. In this way, for instance, a masculine consciousness comes under the influence of the anima and can even be possessed by her.
