On Beginning The Treatment: Lacanian Perspectives

Joachim Cauwe and Stijn Vanheule

The authors examine the opening stages of the psychoanalytic process from a Lacanian perspective through the concept of logical time. We outline three key moments in Lacan’s theory that elucidate the stakes of the entry into analysis. First, the subjective rectification points to the necessity of indicating the patient’s own involvement in the complaint. Second, we discuss how the perspective of the Symbolic entails a double movement of retroaction and anticipation in transference. Finally, the emergence of the supposed subject of knowing is presented. These points are illustrated with the autobiographical account of Marie Cardinal’s analysis.
