Les freudiens hérétiques (Contre-histoire de la philosophie, tome 8)

By Michel Onfray

Le coup d'Etat effectué par Freud pour faire croire qu'il avait, seul, inventé los angeles psychanalyse, a réussi. Il n'a d'ailleurs reculé devant rien pour que les choses en aillent ainsi... Il est parvenu à effacer le rôle du ambitious intellectuel collectif qui, avec lui, mais aussi sans lui, malgré lui, voire contre lui, a inventé l. a. self-discipline. Toute los angeles psychanalyse non-freudienne a été vilipendée, salie, attaquée par Freud et les siens – sa fille Anna en première ligne.

Or, il existe une psychanalyse de gauche qui récuse le schéma idéaliste freudien d'un inconscient psychique pensé comme un ectoplasme transmis de façon mystérieuse d'homme en homme depuis los angeles période glaciaire. Cette psychanalyse de gauche pense l'inconscient comme un produit de l'histoire et des stipulations d'existence concrètes des individus : l'inconscient des ouvriers, des pauvres, des employés, des chômeurs que Freud refuse de soigner, sous prétexte qu'ils jouissent du «bénéfice de los angeles maladie», n'a pas grand-chose à voir avec l'inconscient de l. a. riche bourgeoisie oisive qui se précipite chez Freud.

Dans sa courte vie de libertin drogué, fantasque et suicidaire, Otto Gross invente los angeles formule de l. a. psychanalyse de gauche dans le lignage du nietzschéisme. Wilhelm Reich lui fournit son arsenal conceptuel et constitue le freudo-marxisme qui, bien sûr, donne de Freud l'image d'un libérateur du sexe et d'un libéral progressiste, alors qu'il fut un défenseur de l'ordre sexuel patriarcal et un compagnon de course des fascismes européens. Eric Fromm, exilé aux Etats-Unis, refonde l. a. psychanalyse en regard des échecs du freudisme : si le divan freudien ne soigne ni ne guérit, ça n'est pas l. a. faute du sufferer qui résiste, comme l'affirme Freud, mais de l. a. doctrine qui est fautive. En anti-Lacan résolu par son refus de l'obscurantisme, de l'histrionisme, de l'opportunisme et du sectarisme, Fromm suggest une psychanalyse concrète plus soucieuse des sufferers que de l. a. défense du patrimoine doctrinaire freudien.
