Subject, Patient, Outside World: Reimut Reiche. Pp. 572-596

In the history of German philosophy, the term “subject” can look back on a long and venerable tradition. When use is made of it in a psychoanalytic context, there is no avoiding engagement with the semantics of Nietzsche's concept of the disappearance and return of the subject. Within this configuration, the problematic idea of “subject” (and its necessarily correlative “world”) is recast in terms of the tensions between inside and outside or “intra-” and “inter-.” Gearing his remarks to this operative distinction, the author discusses recent psychoanalytic approaches in which he detects a tendency for the subject to be relegated to the status of a “blank space,” coupled with a radicalization of the trend toward conceiving the psychoanalytic process as an emergent third, something that eventuates through the application of the psychoanalytic method. This third manifests itself in many forms, some of which the author traces in detail. Central to all of them is a recognition structure. Implicit in the third (again in differing forms) is the “outside world.”
