Petition: Marriage for all: Against the instrumentalization of psychoanalysis



Marriage for all:
Against the instrumentalization of psychoanalysis


Paris, 13th January 2013

The undersigned psychoanalysts deplore the persistent use which is made of psychoanalytic knowledge to endorse, in the debate that agitates the nation, some theses opposing the bill. 


Consequently, they are constrained to declare: 


- that nothing in the Freudian experience is likely to validate an anthropology which would authorise itself in the Genesis;
- that the Oedipal structure brought out by Freud is not an anthropological invariant;
- that at the level of the Unconscious, the sexes are not linked by any original complementarity whatsoever, which is expressed in Lacan’s aphorism: “the sexual relation does not exist”;
- that it is up to each speaking being to find the ways of his or her desire, which are singular, twisted, marked by contingencies and misencounters;
- that some do this with the help of religious belief, and others without it; an analyst does not have to give an opinion about that.
