Volume 20: The Psychoanalysis of Children: Freud's Child and Lacan's (1999)


David Pereira

"Sigmund Freud articulated the discovery of the unconscious in relation to the infantile factor, in particular infantile amnesia, laying the foundation for psychoanalysis on the cornerstone of repression. In the Freudian propositions concerning infantile amnesia, sexuality, and sexual theories, Lacan discovered something of the subject's concrete encounter with language and desire in its Otherness."
