Summary "Working as a psychoanalyst to help a patient establish better bonds between the different registers of his psyche does not imply giving in to unifying, globalizing, simplifying, or isolating illusions, but rather requires that we never lose sight of the heterogeneity (including the irremediable differentiation of the sexes) which is just what Freud's metapsychology introduced. Thus the ordeal of otherness with regard to the sex we don't have, the language we don't speak, the means we don't possess is indispensable in affirming a subjectivity."--Jacket.
