The passage through adolescence itself raises the question of the act and its different dimensions, which we will approach from a clinical point of view in this article. If the act which separates the subject from the Other introduces a rupture, it also allows him to find a new symbolic position. In this article we wish to explore the dimensions of the act and its connection with anxiety, using the case of a young paranoiac subject who, with the help of analytical work, struggles not to be in the position of object to which he could be reduced by the risks associated with the dimension of the passage to the act.
