Historias inconscientes

By Gabriel Rolón

“He asumido hace tiempo que jamás lograré ‘extirpar’ el dolor de mis pacientes, porque el dolor es parte constitutiva de l. a. vida. No importa cuánto alguien se analice, de todos modos sufrirá si pierde un amor, o si muere un ser querido. El dolor es inevitable, pero no el padecimiento. Y esa diferencia es l. a. que hace que cada día vuelva al consultorio. Sé que tampoco lograré que desaparezca en ellos los angeles sensación, aunque a veces leve y susurrada, de soledad. Pero es así, pues, como decía aquella vieja canción, ‘estamos todos solos’.” En el año 2007 Gabriel Rolón publicaba Historias de diván, un verdadero fenómeno editorial en el que ponía en evidencia una manera inédita de transmitir algo tan íntimo como es el encuentro entre un analista y su paciente, una forma radicalmente distinta de poner el Psicoanálisis al alcance de cientos de miles de lectores. Hoy, siete años después de aquel primer trabajo, toma el riesgo de ir un poco más lejos, hacia una zona en l. a. que quien padece llega a una situación límite. Por eso, por estas páginas transitan las adicciones, l. a. discapacidad, el incesto, los angeles mentira, l. a. culpa, una histeria grave y sufriente, y un amor desmesurado al borde mismo de los angeles locura. Al ultimate de cada relato, el desarrollo de un concepto teórico y su articulación con el caso expuesto son una invitación a indagar, ya no sólo en lo acontecido durante las sesiones, sino también en el marco conceptual que sostiene l. a. práctica clínica. Lejos está l. a. intención de llevar esta propuesta a un texto de estudio sobre Psicoanálisis. Se trata mejor de compartir experiencias vitales, irrepetibles. Momentos sostenidos en los angeles pura pasión de quien mira al miedo a los ojos para hacer más llevadero un mundo que duele. Y es ahí, en esa zona entre perturbadora y turbulenta, donde sale al cruce Historias inconscientes. Como testimonio y a los angeles vez palabra de acción. Como el libro que confirma definitivamente a Gabriel Rolón entre los autores más importantes de los angeles última década.

Le Malaise dans la culture

By Sigmund Freud

Le Malaise dans l. a. culture est le plus « philosophique » des écrits du fondateur de los angeles psychanalyse. Ce petit livre, publié en 1930, est en effet le seul véritable exposé de l. a. notion de l. a. réalité sociale et de los angeles philosophie politique de Freud. Son diagnostic en a troublé plus d’un – los angeles tradition s’efforce d’endiguer l’irréductible agressivité humaine sans jamais remporter de victoire décisive –, et l’on a voulu y voir los angeles preuve du pessimisme d’un vieil homme rongé par l. a. maladie et rattrapé par l’histoire. Bien au contraire, en leur montrant qu’ils n’ont rien à attendre d’un retour à l. a. « nature », d’une société sans periods ou encore d’un paradis régi par les lois du marché, Freud délivre les hommes de leur dernière chaîne : celle qui les liait à los angeles croyance et à l’espoir. Contrairement à ce qu’a dit Dante, ce n’est pas en enfer que l’on entre quand on abandonne toute espérance, mais dans le royaume de l. a. liberté où l’illusion n’a plus cours.

Le file de cette édition comprend :
1) L’analyse profane et los angeles tentation philosophique de los angeles psychanalyse.
2) L’agression, l. a. mort.
3) Politique de Freud.
4) Freud, prophète ?
5) Une idéologie de l. a. libération ?
