L'identité de la personne humaine au croisement du droit et de la psychanalyse

Abstract : Identity, self-identity, who am I, now there is a really profound mystery. However, whilst there is nothing more topical than itemising our juridical identity, there is nothing more difficult than grasping it, because around it gravitates a constellation of terms and concepts which have more or less equivalent meanings in everyday language. For several years identity has been very much in evidence in political, juridical and scientific discourse. Despite this recognition we can witness confusion and a deep malaise. Currently the plenitude of research on identity has uncovered a minefield. The cartography of our identities has become more complex. The research takes into account the fluctuations of our psyche, the blurring of sex and gender and the number of changes which transform markedly society and the individuals who compose it. Knowledge about human identity eludes jurists who have lost their landmarks. They perceive the symbolic importance of our juridical categories, the delusional nature of certain rules, but also the blind spots of the discourses which are the traces of a more profound repression. It is important to recognise that juridical identity is not just the outcome of administrative decisions but is also constructed by legal arrangements and by more or less unconscious representations. Intermingling juridical analysis with knowledge produced by psychoanalysis, we have tried to understand in which libidinal economy juridical identity arises.
