The bond at present. Trauma, history and subjectivity.
By Dudy Bleger
I wish to thank the authorities of the Argentinian Association for Mental Health (Asociación Argentina de Salud Mental) for inviting me to take part in this Congress, which I gladly agreed to do. The title that occupies us involves concepts that are very hard to deal with in a limited amount of time, so I had to think about how to approach it as an analyst, from the ethics I adhere to. We will not be so naive as to think that when one speaks, the subject of the enunciation is not present right there.

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.
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]

Borges, Wilde, style: why ´anxiety´ is not ´Angst´
By Héctor Mauas, Marco Mauas
In "Note dictated at a hotel at the Quartier Latin" (1984), an essay written towards the end of his life, Borges traces a very tiny line of words on the surface of Wilde's texts. This line has some properties: it is external and foreign to the plane on which it is traced, yet at the same time it is intimately distant. We believe that this Borgesian line is a force of attraction: it creates a difference in potential between texts and produces an "intertext", which is nothing but a niche for the non-words that persist in a future, unfinished dimension -this is called style.

The necessity of the accident: Lacan and the question of trauma.
By Adela Stoppel de Gueller
Trauma appears in the early years of psychoanalysis in order to remove neuroses from the field of degenerative diseases of the nervous system. Instead, Freudsupports the notion of accidental causality, thus enabling particular historical contingencies to acquire the statute of determining causal factors. Lacan takes this subject up again to distinguish the real from reality and to question the concept of cause. The advent of the Freudian unconscious appears as an open wound between the cause and that which is affected by the cause. Neurosis is the scar that tries to heal this wound. After Lacan, trauma is no longer an accident, but that around which the subject is constituted.
