L'effet de serre en clinique infantile

(The Greenhouse Effect in Clinical Work with Children)

Catherine Weismann-Arcache

This article examines the model child of the twenty-first century in the light of clinical psychoanalysis. Three axes are liable to organise the developmental modalities of the child and his modes of subjectivation, since they are henceforth part of our universe: the programmed child and new modes of procreation that defy time; the emergence of the figure of the so-called “precocious” or “highly gifted” child or “with high intellectual potential” who wants to ignore the process of development; the “enhanced” child arising from transhumanism and its hybrid creatures which challenge the limits of the human condition. The first paradigm considers the impact of medically assisted reproduction on infantile sexual theories. The second paradigm questions the thought/intelligence/brain equivalences that are flourishing today. The third paradigm completes the first two through the “connected” child. I will compare these three paradigms that challenge development and the human condition.
