Philippe Gutton: regarding tertiary processes

The article situates tertiary processes (A. Green) as subjectivation work. They originate in the link with the first subjectal object, the mother. The tertiary processes have two interwoven components: negative, trying to sort through the power of external objects (work of negative hallucination), and positive, psychic creativity, representance which is shared among three angles of study: affect, internal-external object representation, and word representation.
