Format: Paperback
When I was a kid psychoanalisis was all (I have now 60). Not only for the mind, but for anything with human relief or meaning. Living with it was a little frightening (in terms of liberty, in terms of the pleausure of life itself, in terms of right to think, and sometimes, if you wish, simply not to think. Perhaps just enjoy art, or love, or some mild or medium sin) to have any significant emotion. All could be interpreted under psy.

Psychoanalysis PSY had the power, in that time, to accuse you, in reason any of your acts, of the most horrid depravaty and corruption, with any right to answer (also when you were nice!, perhaps even more! -- if you were truly nice.). His prestige made posible to carry on lengthy psychoanalitic 'interventions' without any end at sight, without any goal offered or defined. Even more, if the pacient didn`t improve or heal, well ... was his fault only.

But Time has passed. When young (18-20 years) PSY occupied nearly 100% of certain psychiatric magazines, and was the bulk of psychiatric written opinion. Including neurobiologist --in that epoch (the 60-70s)-- when requiring a clinical reference, used some sort of PSY theory (in what part of the brain we find the ID ir the ego, etc. etc.). Today, all that has gone. Now, and on the last years (80's and after) psychiatric magazines don't publish psy papers, they are not written, his university presence is only rethoric and speculative, his opinion usually nor is requested, searched or listened, has lost nearly all his previous intellectual respect and status. Lacan, the last night for fireworks, has passed, and with him any hope of coming back.

Psy still remains in corners around psychotherapy, where other contenders also have been inept in fulfilling what psy couldn't do either.
