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 los angeles corde en major. […]
Il y a les areas dont j’ai parlé tout d’abord, les areas topologiques, les areas 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 probability, 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 l. a. query si c'est pour nous lâcher dans l. a. pénombre du «tâtonnement» ? Voilà sans doute le yet recherché par le psychanalyste Michel Gribinski, directeur de l. a. revue Penser/Rêver, dans ce beau livre, déstabilisant et prégnant, qui «parle» de lui-même plus qu'il ne «dit» quelque selected. (Dominique Mathieu-Nazaire - Télérama)

Example text

He wrote more in· terms of hallucinatory gratification of wishes than in terms of hallucination of gratifying objects. But since he assumed that this involved regressive cathexis of memory-traces, one is justified, I think, in speaking of cathexis of a hallucinated imago. I shall return later to this point when I shall suggest that cathexis of this imago involves something more than a shift from perception to memory. Using this concept of a hallucinated imago, one can say, I think, as a first approximation that Winnicott and Milner have in mind the idea that the development of a healthy erotic rela~onship with reality involves that at the moment of consummation of a wish there should be a convergence and merging of this hallucinated imago (and its cathexis) with the imago of the available external object, not a shift of catheJris from one imago to the other.

There will, I think, be little doubt that in the material I have presented the obvious interpretation that the moon represents the breast is a correct one. The close and complex inter-relationship existing between idealization on the one hand and withdrawal of cathexis from external reality on the other is illustrated by the fact that in everyday speech the word 'disillusion' is used to describe two psychological processes that at first sight seem to be psychopathologically quite distinct. e. the discovery that things are not as one had incorrectly imagined and hoped them to be, but also loss of the ability to find value and interest in things as they actually are.

His earliest erotic sensations were experienced in association with a sliding game. He was, however, unsuccessful in attempts to introduce the pleasure of motion into masturbation. It proved, for instance, impossible to masturbate while riding a bicycle. Certain obsessive ruminations of his adolescence betray the same interest in motion. He speculated for years about possible methods of constructing a perpetual motion machine and was fascinated by the stars and planets. That these were disguised masturbation fantasies with an omnipotent content is suggested 17 IMAGINATION AND REALITY by the fact that he developed no particular interest in, or talent for, either physics or astronomy.
