Any theory contains contradictions, struggles and tensions that derive from the social context, therefore when a theory prevails this highlights the outcome of the struggles and therefore the positions that prevailed. To make these positions explicit, to make them emerge, is a valuable contribution to knowledge and reflection. But these positions are strongholds and in most cases are kept hidden or disguised or have been cancelled or repressed. Psychoanalytical institutions are responsible for the training they provide, for the psychoanalytical model they offer and for the work they perform. This makes struggles for hegemony inevitable. Such struggles have material implications that must affect our work space. Therefore our implication is inevitable not because there are places that are exempt from it but because, if we can see their outline, we can have the illusion of more freedom and more ethics.
