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.

The logics of exclusion: a response from the real.
By Carlos Gustavo Motta
People who suffer from AIDS are sometimes denied basic rights such as food or housing, and they are even fired from jobs they are perfectly able to perform. Moreover, they are sometimes rejected by their community or -in the most tragic instances- by their own family. The social and economic tensions associated to the HIV/AIDS complex constitute a major political and cultural problem.

Psychoanalysis, research and science
By Dr. Jorge Bekerman
The requirement to shorten the interventions and turn them into ten- to twelve-minute-long presentations prompted me to adopt a sort of "minimal format" for this intervention: I chose to state ten one-minute-long proposals, articulated with one another. I prepared the presentation by summarizing the contents of each proposal and by focusing on what I cannot fail to say, rather than on what I would like to say.

Psychoanalytic figures in transference.
By Germán L. García
This article was originally published in Descartes. El análisis en la cultura, Nº 11/12, Anáfora, Buenos Aires, July 1993, pp. 37-40. During the course of analysis, not only do links to people from the analysand's history appear, but also psychoanalytic figures (Gestalten) are formed, ordered in contingent series.
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.

Uses of oblivion.
By Graciela Ortiz Zavalla
I will describe three moments in the psychoanalytic treatment of a young woman, whom I will call Sandra, in order to point out the establishment, the development and the limits of transference. It was Sandra's parents who came to the appointment with me, worried about their daughter.
