Olivier Douville: States of war

The configurations of identity/otherness that characterize adolescents in war and during wartime, are extremely diminished, reduced to forms of the ideal Ego, at the expense of the debt to the Ego ideal. The condition of the child and the adolescent soldier emerges when what is happening in the war is the effect not of an amplification of fraternal wars, but rather of the moment when the least fraternal feeling towards the opponent, the enemy, the other, is reduced to nothing.

Adolescence, 2017, 35, 2, 435-443.
