Volume 7: The Case Histories of Freud - Part 2 (1985)

Logos: The psychoanalytic discourse and its vicissitudes: the defence is the destiny

Oscar Zentner

"From 1979 to the present, the Papers of the Freudian School of Melbourne have been transmitting the transference of psychoanalytic work "in the field opened by Freud (which) restores the cutting edge of its truth." What would be the result of reading retroactively from today? An effect of discourse is the answer. The discourse of the School has produced effects. These effects are five: a. Foreclosure, b. Disavowal, c. Repression, d. Negation, e. Transmission / Transference." Read full Logos
