Clinical vignettes
Desire to kill.
By Claudia Piñeiro
A couple of weeks ago Cacho was shot. His cell phone was stolen and a gun was aimed at his head and fired, but he was not killed. Cacho has a school stationary shop some twenty blocks away from where I live. He was lucky, as the bullet only grazed his parietal bone. He was admitted into the city hospital for a few days and then returned home.
Clinical vignettes
Taking the time.
By Norma Píngaro
Sabrina's parents were referred to me by their daughter's pediatrician, who sensed that he would not be able to solve the little girl's problems through medical treatment only. As a matter of fact, Sabrina had initially gained weight, but later on -as if in defiance- she requested to eat precisely that which was forbidden in her diet.

About El secreto de sus ojos.
By Lidia Deutsch
"El secreto de sus ojos" is a magnificent movie, whose title introduces the audience right from the outset into the resolution of an enigma. In this case, it is the mystery of a crime read in the eyes of the murderer. The desire concealed in his eyes reveals the magnitude of the force he is prepared to display.
The role of time in the clinical situation, according to Lacan.
By David Marrani
The question of time has been a very important question in both soft and hard sciences. In Physics, the former "natural philosophy" [3], it is inevitable to think of Einstein and the concept of space-time. The spatial positioning is linked to the time in many ways. The first spatial positioning, the primitive location, the locus, is inside the mother, the first place of living. The last one is the cemetery, the loculus. Indeed, time and distance, space, are related. The simplest expression of their relation is probably the one of speed. Indeed in the equation of speed we find that speed= distance/time. Interestingly enough, the discovery of the unconscious by Freud and the theory of restricted relativity of Einstein, both from the beginning of the 20th century, consider space and time, and developed the idea that these affect time in the way we think about it. Freud precisely wrote that the time of the unconscious is not the real time.
Some observations on case presentations.
By Marta Serra Frediani
Ever since the Seminar of the Freudian Field was created in Barcelona in 1985, its meetings have consisted of two different sections: a seminar on texts conducted by a lecturer, and a seminar on clinical cases, delivered jointly by the lecturer and two psychoanalysts who "present" a clinical case from their own practice.

Notes on our translations.
By Andrea Banega
Being asked to convey someone else's ideas accurately and effectively into another language is both an honor and a challenge. It is not always a straightforward task, particularly in fields such as Psychology and Psychoanalysis.
