Les nouvelles figures de la peur. À la croisée de la médecine et de la psychanalyse

Abstract : Summary Often it is precisely in the framework of security and preventive measures that fear flares up and is exacerbated, a fear that takes on new forms and throws into sharp relief the complexity of the human condition and the necessity to take ethical responsibilities into account. The author examines the present-day forms of this fear by looking at their subjective resonances, but also their relationship to the current state of predictive medicine and the sociopolitical context. Experience shows us that in many cases, it is paradoxically upon learning of one’s illness or genetic destiny that the subject becomes stranger to himself and his own body. In all predictive methods there is a residue of unpredictability, of what cannot be determined. In dealing with this limit, the encounter between medicine and psychoanalysis can turn out to be especially productive
