The word “war” carries a powerful charge in several sorts of war and in several ways of making war: position war, economic war, atomic war, cold war, spreading war, war against the pandemic… Psychoanalysts and psychoanalysis are also traversed by this signifier. What are the individual consequences that wars have had for analysts in their practice? What reflections and writings associating psychoanalysis and war have issued from this?

essaim is a French psychoanalytic journal. This encounter is devoted to the presentation and the discussion of Issue 46. (For a summary of Issue 46 in English, click here).
