Résumé

Sociologist Daniel Friedmann poses the fundamental question, "What does it mean to be a psychoanalyst?" to ten analysts, who respond by "deconstructing the stereotypical role of the analyst and exploring their vision and practice of their profession." Each of them describes in his or her own way their desire or decision to become an analyst, by describing some part of their careers, addressing the problems of the analyst's responsibility vis-a-vis the analysand, the training process, relations with the analysands, etc. The ten psychoanalysts interviewed are André Green, Eduardo Prado de Oliveira, François Roustang, Georg Garner, Ginette Raimbault, Isi Beller, Jean Clavreul, Jean-Bertrand Pontalis, Jean-Paul Valabrega, and Laurence Bataille.
