L'extimité de l'étranger

Abstract : Summary: From a psychoanalytic point of view, the foreigner's extimacy concerns each individual in his relationship with enigma that is in and out of him. This is what makes up the essence of the processes of subjectivity and the modes of otherness. Or what is the way on how to maintain the relationship to the other and to anyone on the state of civilization? It is from a psychoanalytic and anthropological approach, based on clinical practice and the mutation of the social link, that the relationship to a foreigner is questioned. Relationship that can lead to creativity but also to ruin, when it does not open up to otherness, when it is being carried to the other, the dissimilar, the heterogeneous in a strong desire to cut an inside and an outside, and to fetishize the difference.
