Peut-on écrire sur Freud sans être ni analyste ni analysé ? Non, s'il s'agit d'un essai sur l. a. psychanalyse comme pratique vivante ; oui, s'il s'agit d'un essai sur l'œuvre de Freud comme record écrit, auquel l. a. mort de son auteur a mis un aspect ultimate : une interprétation d'ensemble de notre tradition, qui a changé los angeles compréhension que les hommes ont d'eux-mêmes et de leur vie.Or, cette interprétation, précisément, est tombée dans le domaine public, tombée jusqu'au bavardage. Il appartient dès lors au philosophe de l. a. justifier, c'est-à-dire d'en déterminer le sens, l. a. légitimité et les limites.Comme le montre Paul Ricœur, seule une méditation sur le langage peut fournir une constitution d'accueil à l'exégèse freudienne de nos rêves, de nos mythes et de nos symboles. Et cette exégèse, en s'articulant elle-même à une réflexion «archéologique» sur le sujet, fait en retour éclater los angeles philosophie du sujet, dans ses expressions naïves et prématurées.Le présent ouvrage ne se borne donc pas aux débats d'un philosophe avec Freud ; il libère l'horizon d'une recherche : los angeles lecture de Freud devient l'instrument d'une ascèse du «je», délogé des illusions de los angeles judgment of right and wrong immédiate.

Freud, Psychoanalysis and Symbolism bargains an leading edge common concept of symbolism, derived from Freud's psychoanalytic thought and relocated inside mainstream medical psychology. it is a systematic research of the advance of Freud's remedy of symbolism all through his released works, and it discovers in these writings a large conception that's some distance greater to the slender yet largely accredited "official" view. Agnes Petocz argues that the therapy of symbolism needs to start with the identity and rationalization of a suite of logical constraints and mental standards that any normal thought of symbolism needs to admire, and that those specifications were missed. Her newly proposed "Freudian broad" conception of symbolism, against this, does meet those standards.
