Gérard Pirlot : “Solus Ipse”

Evoking the lonely memories of an orphaned patient using analysis to comfort him in his solitude, the author examines the links between transference resistance, early narcissistic trauma related to the loss of the father, difficulty introjecting sex drives, and moral narcissism. Some texts by the young Rimbaud also illustrate this moral narcissism, which readily uses solitude as a masochistic practice to plug the narcissistic gaps in an Ego that is unable to harmoniously introject sex drives and paternal imago.
