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.

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."

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.
An objector to the phallus.
By Diana Etinger
The phallus governs the relations between the sexes, it is a common reference for the two genders. However each gender's relation to the phallus is not symmetrical, which of course has consequences.
Clinical vignettes
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.
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.
