The Transference and Its Prototypes

(p.205) Eight The Transference and Its Prototypes
Freud and the Scene of Trauma

John Fletcher

Fordham University Press

This chapter works through Freud’s three classic short essays on the clinical transference as a special form of object choice and considers it in relation to the repetition of infantile prototypes, the special nature of transference-neurosis and the strange virtual reality of the transference-love. Freud’s difficulties in relation to the ‘reality’ of the transference are explored and its relation to the forms of repetition in the seduction theory as examined in chapters 1-4 and in the screen memory as heir to the seduction theory and its problems.

Keywords:   abreaction, acting out, catharsis, forgetting / remembering, prototypes, repetition, ontology of, compulsion to repeat, representative / representation, resistance, transference, filled-in / hollowed-out, transference-love, transference-neurosis
