If psychoanalysis, for freud, was an impossible profession, what consequences would this have for psychoanalytic training? and if one’s own personal analysis lay at the heart of psychoanalytic training, how could what one had learnt from this be transmitted, let alone taught? In this groundbreaking book, annie Tardits explores the many attempts that analysts have made to think through the problems of psychoanalytic training. Moving from freud and his first students through to Lacan and his invention of the “pass”, Tardits charts the changing conceptions of psychoanalytic training. With clarity and elegance, she shows how different ideas of what psychoanalysis is will have effects on how training is understood. If psychoanalysis involves each person’s unique unravelling of the unconscious and of sexuality, what kind of training would be appropriate, or even possible?

About the Series

The Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research Library (CFAR)

The Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) was founded in 1985 with the aim of developing Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis in the UK. Lacan's rereading and rethinking of Freud had been neglected in the Anglophone world, despite its important implications for the theory and practice of psychoanalysis. The CFAR Library aims to make classic Lacanian texts available in English for the first time, as well as publishing original research in the Lacanian field.
