Publisher Comments:

Through a fictionalized conversation, psychoanalyst Marie Balmary re-creates her first meeting and ensuing friendship with the monk Marc-François, the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacans brother, as an authentic philosophical dialogue. In this exchange, Balmary explores the relationships between religion and psychoanalysis, searching not so much for what they cure, but for what they save. A conversation in which one god who asks for sacrifice confronts a god of language who exhorts man to express his profound self, this discussion oscillates between agnosticism and belief, between Judaism and Christianity, and between interreligious experience and the maintenance of identities.

 

A través de una conversación novelada, la psicoanalista Marie Balmary recrea su encuentro y amistad con el monje Marc-François, hermano del psicoanalista Jacques Lacan, como un auténtico dialogo filosófico. En este intercambio, Balmary explora las relaciones entre la religión y el psicoanálisis buscando no tanto lo que curan, sino lo que salvan. Una conversación en la cual un dios que pide sacrificios se confronta a un dios de la palabra que apela al ser humano a expresar un yo profundo, este coloquio oscila entre el agnosticismo y la creencia, entre el judaísmo y el cristianismo y entre la experiencia interreligiosa y el mantenimiento de las identidades.
