Download Il bambino inascoltato (Italian Edition) by Alice Miller,Maria Anna Massimello PDF

By Alice Miller,Maria Anna Massimello

Alice Miller prosegue qui nel suo intento di smascherare ogni possibile forma di «pedagogia nera», l’educazione volta a occultare le esigenze dei genitori e degli educatori e a infondere il più presto possibile nei bambini il senso della loro colpevolezza e cattiveria. In questo quadro, anche los angeles freudiana teoria delle pulsioni, che nel 1897 sostituì los angeles ben più dirompente e scandalosa teoria della seduzione, può essere vista come una specie di «psicoanalisi nera», in sintonia con l’idea tradizionale del bambino colpevole: essa distoglie infatti l’attenzione dalla realtà childish, e dunque anche dagli abusi subiti dal paziente, considerandoli un semplice prodotto delle sue fantasie inconsce o delle sue proiezioni. Al bambino presente in noi, dunque, non si dà retta neppure nello studio dell’analista, se questi bada più advert applicare dogmaticamente le sue teorie che non a recepire le angosce e le esperienze traumatiche dell’analizzando.
Se nella nostra società l. a. rimozione collettiva dei traumi infantili è un dato ormai generalizzato, los angeles verità sull’infanzia parrebbe invece affiorare ancora nei sogni, nelle fiabe e nelle opere letterarie. Sulla scorta di alcuni testi di Flaubert, Kafka, Beckett e Virginia Woolf, oltre che di molti esempi tratti dalla pratica analitica, los angeles Miller illustra l. a. sua tesi: sia le messe in scena attuate dai pazienti, sia l’opera poetica in generale vanno intese come messaggi cifrati relativi alla realtà della prima infanzia.
