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.
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.
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.
