Didier Anzieu

Drawing on Houzel, I argue that two things happen when we go from the skin ego to the psychic envelope. In this way, the body ego provides the infant with the building blocks of a fully-fledged ego. Put succinctly, psychic envelopes are sensory experiences that have been transposed from the somatic plane onto the psychic plane; once transposed, they are structured like and function as the envelopes, or skins, of the psyche. The baby has a concrete representation of this envelope which is provided for it by something of which it has frequent sensory experience a sensory experience intermingled with phantasies — its skin.

In the same way that no two skins are alike, no two skin egos are alike. Barron, Self-Analysis p. More specifically, contemporary cultural theorists may find that this approach is problematic insofar as it tends to draw a straight line, as it were, between so-called deficient care in early infancy and so-called deviant behavior in later life.

According to Anzieu, then, the senses of sound, smell, taste and sight interlock with the sense of touch to form the skin of the psyche. In fact, for Anzieu, somatic exteriority has all the explanatory power of psychic interiority and should, therefore, be taken seriously. This envelope is set in motion by the auditory sensations associated with respiration — sensations that enable the infant to experience itself as a container that fills itself and empties itself.

Every psychical function develops by supporting itself upon a bodily function whose workings it transposes on to the mental plane. It is the meeting of senses and sensations that most preoccupies current thinking: A well-defined psychic skin is, therefore, necessary for individuation and, ultimately, individuality. Le classique des classiques.

Hybridity, Dialogism, PerformativityLondon: As a result, Anzisu. The challenge to structuralist and poststructuralist paradigms has resulted in the arrival of two new figures on the Anglo-American scene: These limitations can, however, be overcome.


For the human being to develop healthily, the skin ego must be superseded by what Anzieu calls the thinking ego for it is the latter, not the former, that allows for the development of symbolic thought and elaboration, language and desire. First, it emphasizes the fact that the infant must learn how to make its skin its own. Indeed, according peeau Ahmed and Stacey, the work of these two figures opens up new ways of thinking about subjectivity as always already embodied and, in doing so, breaks down the binary oppositions that tend to pervade other accounts.

I should like to demonstrate the existence at even earlier stage of a sound mirror or of an audio-phonic skin, and the role this plays in the acquisition by the psychical apparatus of the capacity to produce meaning, and then to symbolize.

When I refer to the skin el as a pictogram, then, I do so for illustrative purposes only. Ahzieu, the literal skin becomes more of a figurative skin; it becomes, in other words, a way of thinking about the experience of the senses — about how they feel — and how this feeling grows out of or, indeed, latches onto the sensations springing from the surface of the body.

To avoid this feeling, the individual may, according to Anzieu, act aggressively on his or her skin in an attempt to reclaim and re-territorialize it and, by extension, force it to contain him or her when the skin ego proves unable to do so. Similarly, when he eats, he is often unable to keep food down and has a tendency to expel it as he breathes out. Listes avec ce livre 2 Voir plus. The Psychic Envelope For Anzieu, the skin ego is modelled not only on the experience of the tactile sense organ, but on the experience of the auditory, olfactory, gustatory, and visual sense organs.

For Fausto-Sterling, this approach requires that three principles be kept in view: At certain moments, Gethsemane gave off a strong odor, the more unpleasant for being mingled with the scent of toilet water in which he drenched his hair, no doubt, I surmised, to offset the effects of heavy perspiration.

As lr baby grows and becomes more mentally mature, it gradually develops a sense of its own bodily space — a sense it gains, pesu and foremost, from its tactile exchanges with its caregiver.


Taking the functions of containment, protection, and inscription as his three prime examples, he shows that the ajzieu operates as a surrogate ego for the infant, since it is the skin that performs the vital tasks the fully-fledged ego will eventually perform. He retained a deep grudge against Lacan’s lack of candor and later also condemned the excesses and arbitrary practices of the Lacanians — highlighting the latter’s ‘unending dependence on an idol, a logic, or a language’, as well as the pervasively tantalizing element in Lacan’s approach, with ‘fundamental truths to be revealed Second, the literal skin — and particularly the sense of touch with which it is associated — is no longer privileged to the same extent.

Based on the theory developed by S. The child, enveloped in its mother’s care, fantasizes of a skin shared with its mother: From the Skin Ego to the Psychic Envelope: These exchanges enable the infant to understand itself as a three-dimensional container with insides and outsides. In terms of groups, Anzieu also maintained that ‘there is no group without a common skin, a containing envelope, which makes it possible for its members to experience the existence of a group self’. Over the course of my introduction to his notions of the skin ego and the psychic envelope, I discuss how and why Anzieu takes somatic exteriority as seriously as he does.

To be anzueu, neither Merleau-Ponty nor Anzieu is — strictly speaking — new to the Anglo-American scene. Freud et les autres Despite his importance, however, Anzieu is less well-known to Anglo-American cultural theorists than his now legendary predecessor Jacques Lacan. As both Freud and Anzieu make clear, once organic functions have been transposed onto the psychic plane, they take on a life of their own.

International Journal of Critical Psychologyvol. According to Anzieu, the body ego provides the infant with a range of tools for moving beyond its dependence on the nurturing environment.

This was my first counter-transferential resistance, the assumption that the material most insistently present in the sessions has nothing to do with psychoanalysis because it was neither put into words nor had any apparent status anaieu communication.

In other words, the skin of the psyche is not only a tactile skin, but an auditory skin, an olfactory skin, a gustatory skin, and a visual skin.
