Ce livre se penche sur les relatives fondamentales mais « compliquées » que los angeles psychanalyse entretient avec los angeles philosophie et l’éthique, les sciences et los angeles logique, les pratiques sociales ou encore l’éducation. Résolument, l. a. psychanal yse est présentée ici comme un discours structuré et consistant, une théorie et une clinique du sujet originales, enfin une expérience thérapeutique construite et fortement pensée. Mais los angeles psychanalyse fait souvent determine de parasite dans le champ des disciplines constituées où elle réinjecte le thought de Sujet, et de façon encore plus perturbante ceux de Jouissance et de Réel ; elle est en plus ou en trop, elle introduit le symptôme ou s’introduit elle-même comme symptôme... Il en va de même pour l. a. théorie et l’œuvre de Lacan, toujours aussi étrangement occultées ou mésinterprétées, y compris par des philosophes « professionnels ». C’est pourquoi les family members pour le moins tendues entre discours philosophique et discours psychanalytique, par le truchement privilégié de Lacan, font ici l’objet de larges développements. Puis sont interrogées les stipulations épistémologiques d’un discussion entre les sciences et los angeles psychanalyse, d’autant plus que celle-ci prétend opérer directement sur le « sujet de los angeles technological know-how ». Bien entendu c’est dans sa clinique et sa pratique spécifique, par l’expérience du transfert mettant en acte l’inconscient que l. a. psychanalyse se démarque de l. a. technological know-how et affirme son kind propre, non sans se départir d’une éthique rigoureuse. Enfin il est d’autres conséquences et d’autres implications de los angeles psychanalyse dans les domaines de los angeles politique, des pratiques sociales, de l. a. tradition et même de l’enseignement. Concrètement, que peut l. a. psychanalyse face à l’aplanissement et l. a. déstructuration des discours qui s’effectuent chaque jour davantage au revenue du seul discours capitaliste et sa rhétorique totalitaire ? - 280 pages environ.
