Temporalité psychique et théorie de l'évolution aux origines de la pensée de Freud : l'étude des anguilles et l'influence de Carl Claus

(Psychic Temporality and the Theory of Evolution at the Origins of Freud's Thought : The Study of Eels and the Influence de Carl Claus)

Rodrigo Alberto Cornejo Portilla

Freud's study of human sexuality brought about a Copernican revolution in the temporal conception of the experiences of childhood in relation to adult life. These first experiences produce mnemic material that will only constitute a definite place and function for the subject après coup (nachträglich) : the unconscious mind. In this sense, the postulate that psychic causality organizes mental processes implies, among other things, calling into question the classical model of time in the Western world. Freud's relation to these crucial questions was already present in his first scientific study at the University of Vienna, where he was confronted with problems linked to sexual differentiation and to heterochrony between living beings.
