Des fonctions du double chez Rank et Freud à la romance amoureuse à l'adolescence

Abstract : Functions of the double in adolescent romance in Rank and Freud Abstract: Our article proposes a new theoretical-clinical definition of the double in psychoanalysis, in relation to its links to adolescent processes. To do so, we first relate the works of Rank (1909; 1932) on the double and the hero to the works of Freud (1909; 1913) on the family romance of neurotics and the myth of totem and taboo, in terms of their links to fraternal issues. We then analyze the clinical case of a sixteen-year-old woman admitted for therapeutic support, to show that the double is a figure of transference, allowing the patient an update of her fraternal desires, as well as a construction of her romance. Therefore, the "sororal and fraternal double" that we define metamorphoses the bond of love in adolescence.
