- The Function of the Fantasy -

For Freud, fantasy provides an imaginary consistency to the desire to recover the lost object. What is the function of fantasy in the processing of jouissance? In what way does fantasy constitute the neurotic's solution in his relation to the lack of the Other. What about the subject's solutions in psychosis and perversion compared with the neurotic's choice of the fantasy?

- Transformations of the Fantasy -

From the Other's jouissance of the subject's loss, from the Other's desire to the bit of real to which the subject is reduced, Freud brings us to identify four transformations to the fantasy. They places at stake both of Other in its desire and jouissance and the subject faced with the failure of knowledge (''savoir'') and the very little consistency of the Other in relation to excess.

- The Different Stages in the Development -
of the Fantasy During the Treatment

Do the masculine and feminine positions of the analysand subject determine different modalities in developing and going through the fantasy in the treatment? On what conditions does the analysand take over from the production of knowledge (''savoir'') forming the basis upon which he assumes the ethical responsability for his relation to the real and to the absence of the Other?

- The Role of the Clinic of Fantasy -
And the End of the Analysis

The knowledge (''savoir'') gained from experience defines a logical end to the demand in which transference has found an opportunity, up to the assuming of the ''Pas d'Autre'', which the function of the fantasy was to hide. The conclusion of the clinic of the fantasy is therefore indissociable from the ethical responsability taken by the analysand as regards the production of knowledge (''savoir'').
