Psychopathologie de la vie quotidienne by Sigmund Freud

By Sigmund Freud

Extrait: Si l'on demandait à un psychologue d'expliquer remark il se fait qu'on se trouve si souvent dans l'impossibilité de se rappeler un nom qu'on croit cependant connaître, je pense qu'il se contenterait de répondre que les noms propres tombent plus facilement dans l'oubli que les autres contenus de los angeles mémoire. Il citerait des raisons plus ou moins plausibles qui, à son avis, expliqueraient cette propriété des noms propres, sans se douter que ce processus puisse être soumis à d'autres stipulations, d'ordre plus général. Ce qui m'a amené à m'occuper de plus près du phénomène de l'oubli passager de noms propres, ce fut l'observation de certains détails qui manquent dans certains cas, mais se manifestent dans d'autres avec une netteté suffisante. Ces derniers cas sont ceux où il s'agit, non seulement d'oubli, mais de fake keepsake. Celui qui cherche à se rappeler un nom qui lui a échappé retrouve dans sa judgment of right and wrong d'autres noms, des noms de substitution, qu'il reconnaît aussitôt comme incorrects, mais qui n'en continuent pas moins à s'imposer à lui obstinément. On dirait que le processus qui devait aboutir à los angeles replica du nom cherché a subi un déplacement, s'est engagé dans une fausse direction, au bout de laquelle il trouve le nom de substitution, le nom unsuitable. Je prétends que ce déplacement n'est pas l'effet d'un arbitraire psychique, mais s'effectue selon des voies préétablies et possibles à prévoir. En d'autres termes, je prétends qu'il existe, entre le nom ou les noms de substitution et le nom cherché, un rapport attainable à trouver, et j'espère que, si je réussis à établir ce rapport, j'aurai élucidé le processus de l'oubli de noms propres. Dans l'exemple sur lequel avait porté mon examine en 1898, le nom que je m'efforçais en useless de me rappeler était celui du maître auquel los angeles cathédrale d'Orvieto doit ses magnifiques fresques représentant le « Jugement Dernier ». À l. a. position du nom cherché, Signorelli, deux autres noms de peintres, Botticelli et Boltraffio, s'éta
