Unlike many other professions, psychoanalysis is not based on the transmission of a body of knowledge that, once learnt, would make one a ‘psychoanalyst’. Rather, it involves the long and painful process of putting knowledge in question: the knowledge that one has constructed about one’s own life, one’s family and, indeed, the idea that knowledge is able to answer all the questions that matter to us. This putting in question is the psychoanalytic process itself, and for this reason, the central part of psychoanalytic training is one’s own analysis.
CFAR’s new web journal offers transcriptions of selected seminars and lectures given in CFAR, as well as translations of important new psychoanalytic work from French and Spanish. Five to six articles will appear each year, and they are available free to anyone who accesses the site. The web journal has been made possible due to a gift from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. We would like to thank him for his generosity and commitment to psychoanalytic research.
