Is there a possible genealogy in psychoanalysis?

Leonardo Danziato About the author

Based on the idea of jouisance, here viewed both as a concept and as a dimension in the field of psychoanalysis, the author examines the structural logic of this field, suggesting the possibility of introducing an also genealogical reading about jouisance and the body. Some psychoanalytical propositions are linked to Foucault's genealogy, eventually suggesting that genealogical considerations in the construction of psychoanalytical concepts could be discerned at some moments in the work of Lacan.
