By Pierre Kammerer

Huit récits cliniques où Pierre Kammerer relate los angeles medication psychanalytique d'adultes qui ont subi, dans l'enfance, los angeles haine de ceux qui étaient censés les aimer, leur père ou leur mère. Ce qui caractérise ces sufferers, c'est l'aveuglement dans lequel ils se sont enfermés pour ne pas démasquer l. a. perversion d'un father or mother dont ils ne désespéraient pas d'être aimés. Aveuglement qui les conduit à rester dans los angeles répétition des mêmes traumatismes, à ne pas se protéger du mal qu'on pourrait leur faire.
Pierre Kammerer parle ici d'une 'clinique du témoin' où l'analyste réintroduit l. a. Loi Symbolique (interdit du meurtre, de l'inceste...), prenant ainsi los angeles position de l'autre guardian, celui qui, au second du trauma, s'était absenté alors qu'il aurait dû l'empêcher. Cette restitution du témoin dans le sufferer lui-même permet à celui-ci d'instruire le procès de son 'meurtier' et d'éprouver l. a. colère ou l. a. haine séparatrices qui lui donneront l. a. capacité de se protéger. Pour cela, il charisma fallu aussi que l'analyste 'souffre' de ce qui a fait souffrir l'analysant, le lui traduise et porte avec lui, dans le transfert, los angeles dénonciation de l. a. perversion. C'est ce que nous enseignent ces huit récits cliniques.
Pour conclure, Pierre Kammerer répond à Michel Onfray qui, dans son Crépuscule d'une idole : L'affabulation freudienne, accusait Freud d'être cupide, menteur et partisan des régimes autoritaires, et l. a. psychanalyste d'être 'une hallucination collective appuyée sur des légendes'. Face au philosophe, dont les violentes attaques sont les alliées des pulsions de mort à l'œuvre dans le monde, le psychanalyste se diversity résolument du côté du travail de l. a. tradition (Freud) pour qu'il se déploie sous le signe d'Éros.
