In this book Jean-Gérard Bursztein presents his reading of psychoanalysis, in the spirit of its founder Sigmund Freud. He follows the path laid out by the only other psychoanalyst who has offered a comprehensive approach to the discipline, Jacques Lacan. It should be clear that the issue at stake is not to present Freud's or Lacan's theories in their own words. The title of this English translation of Bursztein's work indicates this explicitly: Freud's theory has been transformed. It has been transformed by his immediate followers, some of whom trimmed it down to exclude even the Death drive"which was one of Freud's fundamental principles. Such transformations may be considered not to be faithful to Freud's discoveries. Freud's theory has also been transformed by Lacan, who, in the mid-fifties of the twentieth century, started a lifelong enterprise to recast it in a very fruitful debate with the sciences and the humanities. Such a transformation brought by Lacan was (somewhat paradoxically) necessary to show that Freud's findings are of the utmost importance for the understanding of subjectivity.
