NLS Knottings Seminar - A View from the Exit


"Who should we talk to about entering analysis? The most interesting thing would undoubtedly be to talk about it to those who have not yet entered analysis, and who perhaps never will. [...] Having located the address, I pose the question: Viewed from the exit, what is the entry into analysis? We don't usually say that we come out of analysis, whereas we readily say that we enter it - could it be that we're not quite sure we'll ever get out, once we've entered? In any case, it's not certain that the practitioner of psychoanalysis has come out of it - perhaps he shouldn't exit it [en sortir], but at most he should get through it [s’en sortir], if he can. Let's say the exit all the same, since we say the entry.
