Patrick Delaroche: Lacan, reader of freud.

Commenting on J. Lacan as a reader of Freud, the author notes that both saw the importance of the Ideal Self during the period they called « puberty ». They use this term in a way that is devoid of biologism, in place of our modern one of « adolescence ». In psychosis, it is an avatar of this process that J. Lacan denounces in the onset of psychosis, namely the impossibility for the subject to introject the Ideal Self which has been projected.
