Dominique Agostini : from the “ fateful fork ” to the triangular passage

The author explores the relation to the street from the clinical perspective of phobias and counter-phobias. Both are obstacles to the inside/outside passage and its psychical equivalent, the liaison between interiority and exteriority : without interiority, there is no exteriority and thus no exit through the inside/outside passage and generational and sexual differences. The theme of the “ inner gang ” is deepened in this sense. In the conception developed by the author, only the triangular space is co-extensive with the capacity for differentiating inside and outside, male and female, and different generations in their complementary relations. It is a therefore a passage : one involving the integration of turbulences brought on by the processes of adolescence.
