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".

Clinical vignettes
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.

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.

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.
