The Authors propose some reflections on the setting, considering it a relational device, which can assume different forms and take place in various contexts. Starting with three short clinical vignettes, they highlight how analytical work is proposed today in contexts that are very different from the traditional consulting room. Referring to playing and theatrical performance, they underline that one of the peculiar characteristics of the setting is its capacity to define a space and a time within which the analytic pair may experience a vital ambiguity (Racamier) and a sense of play (Winnicott), within an analytical process considered from the point of view of an a-causal emerging epistemology.
Keywords: Setting, analytical relationship, emergentism, ambiguity, play, meeting moments
