- The Unconscious -

The Unconscious is a "savoir insu" (knowledge unknown) to the analysand which at the end of the analytic experience may become a "savoir" (knowledge), provided it is transmissible. A knowledge can exist only if there is transmission. The unconscious is therefore a digest of solutions devised by the subject confronted with the defect of knowledge and the "facelessness" to the Other.

- Transference -

From the standpoint of the ethics of the experience, transference is conceived as a device which conditions the (re)commencement of the analytic experience. The stakes are thus the production of a knowledge that constitutes the unconscious in response to the "pas de rapport" (no relation), where all else fails. It supposes a setting in place of the desire of knowledge.

- Repetition -

Two modalities of what is insistent in the unconscious open onto the experience of repetition : that of the repetition of the signifier and that of the return of jouissance. Clinical experience has shown that what is unrepresentable in the signifier is insistent in a real that "ne cesse pas de ne pas síécrire" (never ceases not to be written). The structure of this repetition introduces the question of the verity of the symptom.

- The "Thing" -

Jouissance is at the core of the analytic experience. It evokes the irreducible remnant, unsecured to the signifier, caused by the defect of knowledge which pierces the being. An interrogation of the work of this "thing" that allows the structure of fantasy to be a window on the real of the being can therefore not be avoided. At the end of the experience, the jouissance confronts the subject with the defect of the Other as something the subject must resolve through his ethics.
