Claude Cloës: the passion of suffering for the sake of another

Adolescence is marked by the subject’s encounter with the feminine and contains a potential for passion that in some adolescents may take the form of suffering for another’s sake. Discussion centers on another cause exclusive of the suffering that, I would argue, has to do with primal passion. Treatment work by way of the transference enables the subject to overcome the primal passion and exist as a desiring subject.
