Piera Aulagnier: building a past for oneself

The author analyzes the conditions that link the entry into adolescence with access to a temporal order that protects the subject from the confusion of time that is proper to psychosis. This is only possible if the I, in the midst of childhood, can build a memory reserve in which will be kept certain elements, moments, snatches of one’s own libidinal history. But on this memory reserve must depend the fantasmatic capital that the I must be able to use fully if its memory is to remain endowed with the emotional power without which any new encounter will be divested of the power to enjoy and to suffer.

Adolescence, 2015, 33, 4, 713-740.
