Discovering Francoise Dolto: Psychoanalysis, Identity and Child Development


Add your own review!

Overview

This psychobiographical study of the renowned French pediatrician and psychoanalyst Francoise Dolto introduces both her theories of child development and her unique insights into language and identity. A friend of Jacques Lacan's, Dolto believed that we are all humanized through language, and that the words we use carry unconscious traces of our early histories of love, suffering and desire. Suggesting that infants unconsciously symbolize and that a continuous circulation of unconscious affects-the transference-prevails in all language-based relations, her findings challenge assumptions about autism, autobiography, linguistics, literacy, pedagogy and therapy. Dolto's own corpus-a rich archive blending the personal and professional-demonstrates this, with echoes between Dolto's constructs about the child and her own challenging childhood. This fascinating book will not only introduce the work of Francoise Dolto to many readers, but will be a valuable resource for all psychoanalytic researchers and theorists interested in childhood, language and identity.

Author Information

Kathleen Saint-Onge is a Canadian researcher interested in the role of language in identity-formation and the question, What is a word? Saint-Onge follows Freud as she taps Francoise Dolto's notion of the phoneme to explore the unconscious work of the transference (in texts) in psychical development. Saint-Onge is also the author of Bilingual Being: My Life as a Hyphen (2013).
