Presentation: The main part of the (psych)-analytical work begins in the silence that follows the treatment: a silence full of knowledge that dulls the depths of the psychic experience and gradually manages to be reflected in the mind. The cure presupposes that we must heal, since we are sick: that is its purpose. Sick of what, and what is the purpose of psychoanalysis? Philosopher Louis Althusser puts forward this idea: it is about the effects of "all the dead of childhood", from which the adult has escaped and from which he has been able to survive. The cure makes the survivor, or at least contributes to its making. But what in the end needs to be healed? Can I amputate my own conditions and origin? Is there not some idealism in wanting healing, rather than a self-knowledge, always partial, biased and painful? What exactly is the treatment aimed at? What if, as a radical provocation, it was necessary to heal from the very desire to heal? Then survival would be the goal, in uncertainty.
