Critica della ragione psicoanalitica. Tre saggi su Elvio Fachinelli

Elvio Fachinelli was a great Italian psychoanalyst, an intellectual out of the chorus and engaged in the life of the city, an incisive and brilliant writer. In this book Massimo Recalcati restores to us the strength and originality of his thought free from conformity and dogmatism. Classical psychoanalytic reason is subjected to a new tribunal. Not the austere one of Kantian criticism, but that of the open sea. Can the practice of psychoanalysis liberate human existence from its defensive passion for the closed? Can it interrupt the inexorable character of repetition? Can it open life to the ecstatic encounter with the limitlessness of life?
