Janine Puget : bond and object-relation

The author suggests the effect of presence be considered as what determines the bond, reveals its subjects in exteriority and the unknowable, qualities which come in and “ flush out ” the object-relation. The effect of presence exposes the subject to the unknowable exteriority of the other, which escapes him but which he cannot get rid of . Two clinical vignettes illustrate this hypothesis about analytical work on the bond.
