Pianísimo.
By Néstor Yellati
The pianos were there, in the middle class dining-rooms, and it was important and desirable that children played the piano. Music, both "classical" (no better name has been created for it) and "academic" (an even worse denomination) was greatly appreciated. Playing the piano was then, to certain extent, a forced choice.

Superego resistance: negative therapeutic reaction.
By Dra. Marta Gerez Ambertín

The current debate on the negative therapeutic reaction (N.T.R.) as a form of superego resistance is here discussed, in order to explain the clinical specificity of the N.T.R. within the analytic device. The difference between N.T.R., negative transference and character types is established. From the Guilt Clover, the mute form of guilt is highlighted as a need for punishment (essential bastion of the superego resistance). The importance of the mourning for the a object as possible break from the fence of the N.T.R. in the analytic cure is emphasized.[1]

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."

The Freudian understanding of hysteria and its representation in the films of Alfred Hitchcock.
By Bernard Kennedy
In this essay I will consider Freud's theories on hysteria. I will outline his theory of seduction and infantile phantasy. It will involve a consideration of the role of sexuality in hysteria and Freud's typology of hysterical symptoms. I will then consider other theories of hysteria, including those of Showalter, Mitchell and Foucault.
I will outline Freud's theory of representation and regression, because each has a role in hysteria, and look at Lacan's approach to regression. This will lead to a consideration of cinema as a representation of image, where I will illustrate, through two of Hitchcock's films, Rebecca (1940) and Rope (1948), the representation of hysteria in the female and male gender.
I will illustrate how hysteria is the movement of the return of the repressed and is centred on the Freudian theory of sexual trauma, with its Lacanian resolution of entry to the order of the phallus, and its Freudian resolution through speech.

Contemporary epidemics
By Graciela Brodsky
Hysteria, with the "psychical contagion" and the imitation that characterize it, enabled Freud to access the enigma of unconscious desire and to conceptualize the mechanism of identification. The boarding school for girls was the model he chose to explain this. Nowadays, however, young ladies neither receive long letters nor are they prone to fainting, and "contagion" does not require physical proximity. The subjects who are "all by themselves" in the time of the "Other who does not exist" do not have the ideals that enable identification to take place. A different conceptualization hence becomes necessary in order to account for the "contemporary epidemics".
