Piera Aulagnier, an Introduction: Some Elements of her Intellectual Biography Language Translation

Patrick Miller

The title of this paper, ‘Naissance d'un corps, origine d'une histoire’, bears witness to the importance that Piera Aulagnier granted to the dimension of history, and more precisely to the notion of historicization which she emphasized, and is related in some ways to that of the identificatory process in the development of personality.

However, as far as her biography is concerned, we are left with scarce material, and the essence of it is mostly intellectual. It lies mainly in her books and articles where we can try and retrace the development and transformation of her thinking. It also resides in the Journals she created: first L'Inconscient (in collaboration with Jean Clavreul), then Topique which she launched in 1969 as sole chief editor, and in the part she actively played in the history of the French psychoanalytical movement, its controversies and schisms.

First in the Société Française de Psychanalyse (SFP) where she trained and graduated and began publishing, then at the Ecole Freudienne de Paris founded in 1964 where she followed Lacan who had just been banned from being a training analyst by the IPA site visit committee when the SFP became an IPA Study Group, out of loyalty and solidarity because she thought the ban was unacceptable rather than out of support for his positions on training.

When Lacan implemented a new graduating procedure he called ‘La Passe’, she, together with François Perrier and J.P. Valabrega fiercely criticized it and refused to comply.
