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.

Thus, the term morphology takes on its sense not only through the usual semantic definition applied to it, but also through the two correlations connected to it. 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”.
