The "coldness" encouraged by Freud for the analysis - topic of debate between various analytical currents - is closely related to the method of free association and floating attention; the "indifference" defines a listening of psychic events freed from any finalized representation. This vision, favoring a state of "calm" that, beyond any pathos, allows the analyst to facilitate the transfert process, aims to deconstruct the concretions favored by the resistance, and it tries to bring out aspects of the repressed infantile sexuality. The author examines the guidelines of more analytical currents concerning this device and its theoretical basis.

Keywords: Indifference, free association, floating attention, coldness, infantile sexual, unconscious sensitivity, counter-transfer
