Download E-books Sortir de l'autisme: Parents, ces vérités qu’on vous cache PDF

By Henri Rey-Flaud

Quelle prise en cost pour l’enfant autiste ? Les mom and dad, qui bien souvent ne connaissent ni les principes ni les effets des trois approches dominantes de l’autisme, sont tragiquement démunis face à cette question.

Aujourd’hui, le comportementalisme tient le haut du pavé. Avec lui, on espère obtenir – et on obtient quelquefois – une version minimale à l’espace social ordinaire : prise des repas, hygiène corporelle, utilisation des transports, conduite dans les lieux publics. Mais au prix de quelle violence ? de quelle dénaturation de l’enfant ? À l’inverse, le « non-agir » initié dans les Cévennes, il y a près d’un demi-siècle, par Fernand Deligny défend l’idée que les autistes, représentants d’une humanité primitive, doivent être, comme les peuples premiers, respectés dans ce qu’ils sont et préservés du monde « civilisé », au risque d’être laissés à leur native.

La psychanalyse, repensée, réinventée, libérée des pratiques obsolètes, suggest une troisième voie. Substituant une clinique du regard à celle de l’écoute et donnant l. a. priorité à l’accueil et au « tissage » quotidien, elle entreprend d’amener l’autiste non pas à nous mais à lui-même, afin de faire apparaître, à terme, un enfant qui ne soit pas seulement présentable, montrable, mais, comme les autres, « rêvable » par ses parents.

Telle est assurément los angeles sortie de l’autisme – respectueuse de l’enfant – qu’on est en droit d’attendre aujourd’hui.

Download E-books Le Malaise dans la culture PDF

By Sigmund Freud

Le Malaise dans l. a. culture est le plus « philosophique » des écrits du fondateur de l. a. psychanalyse. Ce petit livre, publié en 1930, est en effet le seul véritable exposé de los angeles perception de l. a. réalité sociale et de l. a. philosophie politique de Freud. Son diagnostic en a troublé plus d’un – l. a. tradition s’efforce d’endiguer l’irréductible agressivité humaine sans jamais remporter de victoire décisive –, et l’on a voulu y voir l. a. preuve du pessimisme d’un vieil homme rongé par los angeles maladie et rattrapé par l’histoire. Bien au contraire, en leur montrant qu’ils n’ont rien à attendre d’un retour à l. a. « nature », d’une société sans sessions ou encore d’un paradis régi par les lois du marché, Freud délivre les hommes de leur dernière chaîne : celle qui les liait à los angeles croyance et à l’espoir. Contrairement à ce qu’a dit Dante, ce n’est pas en enfer que l’on entre quand on abandonne toute espérance, mais dans le royaume de los angeles liberté où l’illusion n’a plus cours.

Le file de cette édition comprend :
1) L’analyse profane et los angeles tentation philosophique de l. a. psychanalyse.
2) L’agression, l. a. mort.
3) Politique de Freud.
4) Freud, prophète ?
5) Une idéologie de los angeles libération ?
