David Bernard, Sonia Alberti, Vera Pollo: Adolescence and parental knowledge.

In his preface to F. Wedekind’s play, Spring Awakening, J. Lacan defended several theses, not only about adolescence, but also about what adolescence reveals and that is applicable to all. We will focus in particular on one of these theses: there is no initiation. From there, we will attempt to isolate the basis of the difficulty, and at the same time the necessity, of the adolescent’s detachment from the knowledge of the parental Other.
