A Lacanian Left?
By Jorge Alemán
The author proposes a praxis of the Left based on "the thought of Jacques Lacan, the only materialist theory about the malaise of the 21st century" and claims that "the teachings of Lacan may illuminate that which still remains unthinkable: the defeat, on a worldwide scale, of the revolutionary project of the Left."

Youths with a route of their own.
By Lic. Sergio Marcelo Zabalza
During the difficult transition to adulthood, every adolescent faces the challenge to be one among others. In order to claim one's place in a group of peers, the job market, the school or the university, one has to give up the privileges and the protection afforded by childhood. The benefits of autonomy must be paid by meeting one's responsibilities.
Some observations on case presentations.
By Marta Serra Frediani

Three aunts.
By Dr. Jorge Bekerman
Lidia s childhood was atypical, to say the least. An "only child", she owed this peculiar filial status to a tragic event: the death under ambiguous circumstances of a baby who, had it not died during labor, would have been her elder sister; a sister, by the way, who was dead but not gone.

Taking the time.
By Lic. 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.
Psychoanalysis in Argentina, from Klein to Lacan
By Alejandro Dagfal
When one refers to the history of psychoanalysis in Argentina, a basic issue immediately leaps to the eye: the use of the singular is especially problematic, both as far as the history of psychoanalysis and psychoanalysis itself are concerned. Mariano Plotkin has just shown why it is more appropriate to talk about various possible histories, rather than about a single history.
