The relation between bodily health and mental health has been observed since ancien Times. Ancient teachers of the art of medicine advised to treat a person not an illness. Facination with the discoveries concerning the cell was the reason why investigation of somatic illnesses concentrated more and more on exploring physiology , ignoring mental aspects. Psychoanalysis, on the other hand considered mental sphere as the source of all illnesses. Although psychoanalitical approach is still controversial psychologists and doctors are still trying to find relations between personality traits and illnesses...

Edoardo Weiss, the only direct disciple of Freud in Italy, returned to Trieste, his native town, in 1919 after a long period of psychoanalitical studies in Vienna. An enthusiastic acceptance of Freud's ideas in the cultural, mainly Jewish, circles in Trieste was parallel to a sort of distrust of the Fascist ideology. In 1930 Weiss decided to move to Rome where he hoped to be able to found an Italian psychoanalytical movement. The Catholic Church, Fascist Ideology, philosophical Idealism and scientific Positivism were all factors hampering the spread of psychoanalysis in Italy...

It is essential to have a concept of psychosis, based on a psychoanalitic pattern of the functioning of mental life. A dynamic differential diagnosis of the different types of psychosis should be done. Speaking about "the" transference in "the" psychosis leads to confusions that render inoperative the theories and techniques used in the treatment of the psychotic structures. Considering the transferences as an unattainable part of reality that keeps on passing from one structure to another, it has different features in the different types of psychosis...

Psychoanalitical literature evolved around the idea of a space for desire structured according to the boy-mother relationship model. Is the feminine clinical approach, together with the historical contribution of feminism, discovering a new space for feminine desire? The psychotic female, for whom the role of the father has no meaning in the mother's discourse, refuses the Law as a symbol of social authority. As for the hysteric female, she does not rely on the Father as a safeguard against the emptyness that lies behind the Laws and the beliefs of men...

Forty men who had their vasectomy reversed were psychoanalitically examined. The changes of mind were above all concerned with the results of new relationships, initially no (more) children, then (more) children. The stability of the relationship at the time of vasectomy had been wrongly evaluated which must subsequently influence any advice given. Between 22 and 26 months after the reversal there was a telephone follow-up. Fertilization occurred with 32.1% of the cases, sperm was present in 77.4% (according to the men)...

The development of psychoanalitic short term therapy confirms the importance of the first interview for estimating the expectations of the patient and elaborating the first hypothesis. The therapist is immediately caught in the dynamics of pretransference and precountertransference. He depends upon the comprehension of his own emotional reactions to understand the actual affection and the nodal conflict. The psychodynamic hypothesis should be inferred from what both the patient and the therapist are saying and acting...

Within the general framework of Jacques Lacan's Psychoanalytical views and using a Semiotic approach, it is contended that the signification "objet-that-is-lost' (disapeared for ever), is not an empirical, first-hand, immediate reproduction of perceptual data. Far from it, it is the result of a complex process, leading to the building up of the concept. The contention is based upon the following hypothesis: A. the "object-representation-mnemic trace", in its diadic (interchangeable) value, belongs to the imaginary-specular register, where he object missing can only be registered as absence, and neve as a loss or as an impossiblity of reappearance...

The author reviews Freud's postulations on proto-phantasies, and traces the evolution of several concepts related to them, in the aim of showing that there is a common purpose along the whole theoretical development: to uncover or to explain the innate archaic legacy, its role and its effects within the Psychic Apparatus of men. The first formulations of the idea of proto-phantasies in Freud's works are as early as his letters to Fliess and the Traumdeutung (1900), where it is stated the hope that the interpretation of dreams can lead to the discovery of innate elements received from ancestors...
