About the topic of discussion
The metaphor of the archaeological exploration has accompanied psychoanalysis since its beginnings. The one who initially advance it, Sigmund Freud, suggested by it the psychoanalysts attitude, who is in labour of discovering and knowing the psychic depths. The unconscious, the predilection field of the psychoanalysis studies and applications, refers to that part of the human psychic which consists in those contents that are forgotten, rejected or repressed from the conscious, but also from other contents, which have never reached the conscious, represented by primitive excerpts, pre and post-symbolised, definitely pre-represented, pre-verbalized archaic.
The conference where we invite you is about these archaic contents. As they are so obscures, can they influence in any way the relationship with the self and with the others? If yes, considering the premise proposed by the psychoanalytical presentations of the Conference, then how could they be discernable? And how could they be shown so that, after being properly handled, they should be integrated in the psychic in the end? Doctor Gianina Micu, Psychoanalist, scientific vice-president of the Romanian Society of Psychoanalysis.
