Inquiétante Etrangeté et clinique de l’adolescence

This article proposes a critical exploration and reflection of the freudian concept of the Uncanny (Unheimlich). Starting from its particular place in the freudian thought, we open a field of investigations that puts this notion at the heart of the work of language. According to Freud, language development proceeds in a way that meanings are "deposited"inside a word, in a way that the heimlich ends up coinciding with its opposite unheimlich. "Strangeness" (The Uncunny) considered as an endopsychic perception of a detachment of affects, is the consequence of a loss of meaning inside the word of a sentence. Such is the first intuition of Freud, even before he explains the concept of the uncanny in his famous texte of 1919. Our goal in this article is to start from this first freudian intuition and put it to work in a clinical and theoretical way. In this sense, we bring a fragment of cure and we specify our approach by studying the particularity of the emergence of the "uncanny" in adolescence. More precisely, we analyze the relations of the uncanny with the emergence of delirious flash in adolescence, in the field of the psychopathology of psychoses but not necessarily pathognomonic.
