Jean-Yves le Fourn : “ l’amitié ” “ half-and-half ”, from Jonathan to JN. A. Rimbaud

The adolescent friendship is perhaps the way that guides the adolescent subject from his childhood to the adult world, through the register of the “ moitié ” “ half ”) – as in “ half-and-half ” : half Amitie, half Amour in French, half friendship, half love in English.
Two clinicals examples, Jonathan and JN. A. Rimbaud will guide us towards the possible concept of friendship in the adolescent psychoanalysis, which would be a libidinal relation but one whose sexual aim is sublimated by society into something like solidarity, justice, fidelity.
