We can peak, in fact, that psychoanalytic research in our country was more or less divided between, on the one hand, a rigid structuralism that had no place for any process of transformation, or any sort of psychic dynamic, which evacuated all ideas of psychogenesis in order to privilege a pre-established and transcendental structure, and on the other hand a reductionist view that tied psychic development to anziru biological foundations, that misrecognized the specifically psychic level of organization characteristic of the human being.

For Anzieu, this confrontation could only occur once the patient had learned to begin processing his aggression through his mind, not his body. By privileging the surfaces of the human being, both psychic and somatic, Anzieu shows that the superficial is at least as important as the profound. In fact, for Anzieu, somatic exteriority has all the explanatory power of psychic interiority and should, therefore, be taken seriously.

An Introduction to the Work of Didier Anzieu. In my view, he does so largely because considerations of the visual sense have — up until quite recently — tended to eclipse considerations of the other senses and their role in psychic development.

The intersensorial function, then, allows the infant to feel that it can manage its sensory perceptions instead of feeling alienated or overwhelmed by them. Put differently, these primitive pleasures serve as the first and most fundamental support for the development of the sexual drives. Le Moi-peau infos Critiques 6 Citations 3 Forum.

The baby, then, does not understand itself as a separate or singular being at this point in its life. In what follows, then, I endeavour to provide precisely this sort of introduction. Malaise dans la civilisation Sigmund Freud. Or, to use a metaphor that Anzieu himself uses, the skin of the psyche is in many ways like the skin of an onion Anzieu,p.

And although Merleau-Ponty has, over the course of the last two decades, received more attention than Anzieu, current trends in cultural theory suggest that this might be starting to change see, for instance, Cataldi, ; Matthews, ; Olkowski and Morley, ; Olkowski and Weiss, ; Weiss, In fact, cultural theorists have tended to focus more on the former than they have on the latter and it is for this reason that I consider the latter so closely here see, for instance, Prosser, ; and Tyler, Over the course of the interviews, Anzieu argues that he and Lacan differ in two key ways: In this remark, he is pointing to a longstanding tradition in Western knowledge production: In fact, while the gustatory envelope may not be as fundamental as the auditory envelope, or as perceptible as the olfactory envelope, it is nevertheless an important part of what enables the infant to decide what it likes and therefore accepts and what it does not like and therefore rejects.

Alizade, Feminine Sexuality London p. While these second skins may be helpful in the short term, they are, according to Anzieu, in need of analytic attention in the long term. Anzieu studied philosophy and was a pupil of Daniel Lagachebefore undertaking his first psychoanalysis with Jacques Lacan.


It is pequ cutaneous phantasies which clothe its nascent Ego with a figurative representation, admittedly imaginary, but which mobilizes […] what is most profound in us, our surface.

Grosz makes exactly this call and, in doing so, urges cultural theorists to formulate new frameworks for making sense of the self.

Yet, as his work with a patient ansieu Gethsemane makes clear, the skin ego can also be based on psychic envelopes that are linked to the olfactory sense. For instance, he claimed to enjoy the burning feeling of smoke in his lungs. Psychologie de l’inconscient Carl Gustav Jung. The Philosophy of Merleau-Ponty.

According to Anzieuthe skin ego is only the first of two structures associated with the fully-fledged ego. Insofar as it is more primitive than its tactile counterpart, the sound bath functions in the first instance as a sort of substitute skin ego.

While the infant is handled and held by its caregiver, the pleasures of the skin are awakened and the erogenous zones are enlivened.

Jean Laplanche recommends that the concept of anaclisis be reserved for the support the sexual drives find in the organic functions of self-preservation, but I want to give it a broader interpretation. Shortly thereafter, Anzieu discovered that Gethsemane had had a difficult birth, and that when he was born his skin was torn and covered in blood. This understanding of sound as a crucial and, indeed, constitutive psychic envelope could prove useful to a wide-range of contemporary theorists — particularly those interested in thinking critically about phenomena like the cultural politics of music or the social implications of noise.
