The professionals of the impossible

As Freud admonished: "[...] a school should get more than not compel students to suicide, it must give them the desire to live". But how to do it effectively? How not to feel impotent against another who demands to learn? How to restrain the jouissance of the capital or the tyranny of scientism of the teaching manuals? We have to consent the uncertainties and ambivalences inherent to the manner to educate or subvert the will of ignorance of the other without abandon it, doing therefore his desire to live well. Based on the concepts of impotence, impossibility and of the theory of speech, we will introduce the issues that we discuss in this article.
