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.

Clinical vignettes
Three aunts.
By 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.

Words and silences of love.
By Sergio Marcelo Zabalza
One of Pablo Neruda's most famous poems begins with the line: "I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent". According to many people, this is one of the most accomplished verses in world literature. Perhaps because its tone glides with the tempo of something gratuitous, whose efficient witticism reveals more through what it suggests than through what it actually states.

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.

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.
