Philippe Givre : clinical treatment of impersonality

In Les poétiques du corps (Poetics of the Body), Sylvie Le Poulichet continues her exploration of clinical dimensions of the unformed or impersonality. She emphasizes the role of archaic terrors and a lack of transmission about origins, which will either cause defects in “embodying,” or give rise to anxiety identifications, or lead to the creation of fantastical theories in adolescence.
