Lisa Ouss-Ryngaert : the act as process?

The author stresses four points mentioned by J. Dayan and B. Guillery-Girard. The first has to do with the reversal of conceptions of adolescence into a teleological model. The second offers a new reading of the clinical signs : a conception of the act not as a symptom, but rather as a structuring process. The third concerns the way in which we can conceive of the articulation between neurosciences and psychoanalysis. The last discusses the edification of a new framework for psychopathology. From the place of the « all-neuroscience » in the psychology of common sense, to the opening of a fruitful theorization, these interactions continue to raise questions for us.
