The insolence of the symptom

Issue 21 : June, 2021
ISBN : 9782749270098


The psychological symptom is undeniably insolent. Sometimes it causes suffering, but not always, and when it is not the individual themselves, it can be the people around them or the social group that cannot tolerate its presence. We would like it to disappear as soon as possible, and yet it often resists, transforms or provokes. Sometimes it resists until it becomes an integral part of the personality; we would not let it go without losing a little of ourselves, of the identity or of the ideal we have given ourselves. When it expresses itself in the form of behaviors, phobic or addictive for example, its function and the benefits it provides can outweigh its drawbacks. There is also the symptom that manifests itself in our defensive body, or the symptom for which a spokesperson, a child for example, is the voice... The infinite variety of symptoms is in proportion to the complexity of the conflicting movements within the psyche, and more primitively to the hazards of the construction of subjectivity in relation to the environment. How can the institution of psychiatric care, rather than engaging in an exhausting battle, take hold of the symptom as an attribute, a challenge to questioning and creativity?
