Le rapport au temps, à l'espace et au discours des voix d 'un point de vue psychopathologique

Abstract : Voices are considered in this paper as subject of speech without perceptive conception. Descriptive results, already published, are deepe ned with a study case of a psychotic woman. The links she has with voices, time and space are examined as hallucinated stories then as a psychopathological point of view. This work attempts to set a paradigm of voices: hallucination in psychosis is a mean to manage intrapsychic tensions. It is a representation of unthinkable and it contains the psychic tension that psychotic people is not able to transform. Hallucinations are often viewed as a perception disorder or a cerebral dysfunction. DSM-IV considers them as a central symptom of schizophrenia. This paper, in a phenomenological approach, takes account auditory hallucinations (voices) as a clinical phenomenon and examines them as stories. These stories are studied with the narratives of psychotics patients. Voices are considered in this paper as subject of speech without perceptive conception. The methodology used is a discursive analysis of speech. Descriptive results, already published, are deepened with a study case of a psychotic woman. Discursive analysis focuses on the choice of common words of French language considered as indicators. It permits a systematic descriptive analysis. The indicators are those of localization in time, in space and those of reported speech. The study c ase completes these processes. Empirical results show that psychotics are able to control their speech to an aim. The indicators of localization in time and space are linked with voices. Reported speech shows that the hallucinated speech must be told as it was produced by voices: there is no transformation. Study case of a psychotic woman describes the links she has with voices, time and space. They are examined as halluci-nated stories then as a psychopathological point of view. This work attempts to set a paradigm of voices: hallucination in psychosis is a mean to manage intrapsychic tensions. It is a representation of unthinkable and it contains the psychic tension that psychotic people is not able to transform.
