This book attempts to explore certain asymptomatic areas of the mind and to integrate them within the overall domain of psychopathological dynamics. It is in these areas that desire, de-alienation and inner freedom play a predominant role. Far from being trivial, the integrative work done on these issues has repercussions on other psychic functions through associative channels. Facilitating pathways that open up new avenues are created; the Oedipal tragedy and the other tragedies that are part of life are made easier to negotiate. In the midst of the clamor of neurosis, working on health collaborates in the treatment. Without falling into unwarranted enthusiasm or naive optimism, this book examines how positivity operates, and goes on to investigate the concept of the construction of an internal framework, the reversal of repetition, and the problematic issues raised by impasse and trauma.
