Morphology and Transformations of Psychoanalytic Models Language Translation

Francesco Corrao

The title of this paper does not represent a more restricted definition of the general theme of the Congress: instead, it hopes to be a homologous expression of it, originating from a viewpoint chosen in order to describe certain figures to be given more importance in the expository course followed.

The first refers to a methodological option formulated by K. Eissler (1962) in these words: “Structure (…) is not function alone, but function and form. It is the absence of a psychoanalytic morphology that impedes the development of essential theoretical potentialities”.
