Example text

This piece, perhaps more than Freud’s other case studies, has received analyses upon meta-analyses, and the criticism of his clinical judgment in this case is well known (see Kahane & Bernheimer, 1990). What makes it of interest presently, however, is the ease with which that text illustrates what Lacan later termed the symbolic register. Here, Freud engages often in “following the letter” of his patient in her dreams, rhetoric, symptomatic behaviors, and associations, and the concept of the “switch word” articulated in The Interpretation of Dreams continues to be applied with Dora.

Her name contained an “s,” and this he had put last, that is, immediately before the “amen” at the end. We may say, therefore that by this process he had brought his “Samen” [semen] into contact with the woman he loved … (p. 224) We find Freud’s attention to language again becoming central in another of the Rat Man’s compulsions. Upon noticing, during a vacation, that his “lady” was being lavished with attention by her English cousin, Dick, the Rat Man began experiencing a compulsive need to lose weight by refusing food and running (p.

159). Be that as it may, given the nature of what is at issue in this research (that is, the “letter” of the patient’s speech), it is of some importance to maintain as accurate an account as possible of what the patient says in the session. Further, Freud was in a professional position markedly different from my own. Not unlike Lacan after him, much of Freud’s energy was spent furthering the cause of his new treatment, psychoanalysis, making it palatable and promising to its potential consumers (Roazen, 1995; Roustang, 1990).
