The École de psychanalyse Sigmund Freud is open to anyone, in whatever title, interested in psychoanalysis as invented by Freud and further elaborated by Lacan.
The signifier « school » (école) appeared in the history of the analytical movement in 1964 with the foundation by Jacques Lacan of the École freudienne de Paris. In conformity with the law of the signifier, this signifier school differed from itself from the moment of the « Proposition of October 9th on the School psychoanalyst » and the setting up of the experience of the pass at the École freudienne de Paris. The signifier undoubtedly differed again with the dissolution of this School in 1980.
The École de psychanalyse Sigmund Freud was formed in May 1994, 30 years after the foundation of the École freudienne de Paris. Three Schools developed in France following the dissolution of this first School : the École de la Cause freudienne, the École freudienne and the École lacanienne de psychanalyse.
The École de psychanalyse Sigmund Freud is situated in a third period. From the start, the EPSF chose to resume the experience of the pass. It is this experience which establishes a « school link » (lien d’école) for its members.History
