Example text

The letter as agency, which Lacan makes a fundamental characteristic of the unconscious, itself depends upon word play whose aim is to fuse the two meanings of the word 'letter': a text sent to an absent recipient, and the basic element of the alphabet that makes up written language. It therefore confuses two realities—the code and the message— whose distinction is one of the basic tenets of linguistics. When they do not exhaust the patient, stylistic exercises such as these reinforce his fascinated admiration for the analyst by making h i m believe that the latter knows every­ thing about h i m that he himself not only does not know, but will never be able to tell h i m about except i n a cryptic manner and while indefinitely adrift.

The acquisition of such knowledge is even one of the criteria for terminating an analysis. A psychoanalyst is not superhuman, except when the regressive urge provoked by treatment reactivates the infantile idealization that the patient had once held for his parents. He is a man like other men, who would not have come to analysis if he had not suffered from certain internal conflicts, and if he had not retained certain marks from the dramas of his history, while at the same time having achieved a relative detach­ ment from these conflicts and dramas.

The considerable development of the human and social sciences soon after the Second World War, and also of anthropology, provided the latter is taken i n the broad sense and not reduced to ethnology, gave Lacan the idea of a rapprochement with the anthropology of LeviStrauss, the linguistics of Jakobson, and the structuralism subsequently developed by Barthes. Lacan reminded us that the qualities necessary for a psychoanalyst are every bit as much the products of a training i n literature, philosophy, FREUDIAN A N D LACANIAN PSYCHOANALYSIS 43 and anthropology as one i n medicine, neuro-biology, and psychiatry.
