Discussing the interventions by Lawrence Friedman and Robert D. Stolorow (issue no. 4/2018 of Psicoterapia e Scienze Umane), the use of Heidegger’s thinking as a philosophical framework for psychoanalysis, which was Binswanger’s position, is considered unfruitful. Nevertheless, it is acceptable the use of some Heideggerian concepts and descriptions in an analogical sense, even if in a different context (as Lacan brilliantly did with the concept if id). The possibility of searching for the existential meaning of a symptomatology is not excluded, in addition - and not as an alternative - to the search for causes that is typical of psychoanalysis. But it is necessary to adopt a meaning of "existential" closer to that of Jaspers than to Heidegger’s.
