PIPOL 10 – The Bibliography
"There is nothing to prevent motherhood from being the way in which a woman assumes her castration," [cautions Jacques-Alain Miller]. Nothing forbids it because there is love – Lacanian love. The mother is not only the one who has. She has to be […] the one who does not have ”. What a long way our orientation has come from the Freudian hypothesis of becoming a mother, which made the presence of the child equivalent to the penis in a game of substitution, and whose emergence deprived the subject of access to its own lack, the key piece of the economy of desire.
And it is this momentum that this bibliography wishes to echo. You will see, as you go through it, that it is not bogged down in the shortcomings of cancel culture, but retraces, often chronologically, the discoveries and the trials and tribulations of a research that over time touches on the real of sex and that of death of discourses and scientific discoveries. A research carried by the language of analysands, which leads us from the questions formulated for example to Freud by Mme X, caught in the grip of an abortion which sheared not only her body but also her thought, to the contemporary arrangements between desire and technology, delicately put into words by François Ansermet.
This collection also follows the trajectory of psychoanalysis by making the languages of the EuroFederation resonate at a time when borders are reappearing. This polyphony makes us feel, in body, the richness and the necessity of a circulation between territories and particularities.
