La mélancolie : Vie et œuvre d'Althusser by Gérard Pommier

By Gérard Pommier

L. a. somme de courses, de manuscrits et de témoignages qui concernent l'œuvre et los angeles vie d'Althusser en feront sans doute un cas aussi exemplaire pour l'étude de l. a. mélancolie que Schreber, lu par Freud, le fia pour l. a. paranoïa. Face à un philosophe qui marqua toute une génération et dont les avancées renouvelèrent radicalement le marxisme, comme celles de Lacan donnèrent à Freud sa pleine efficacité, une query majeure se pose: quelle relation folie et raison entretiennent-elles? Loin de séparer son œuvre et son délire, et sans considérer un quick que l. a. logique de ses thèses aurait été construite pour faire barrage à sa psychose, Althusser a cherché à élucider les issues de jonction, les passes obscures, comme si l. a. démence de l'histoire trouvait sa raison dans celle de sa propre folie. Cet ouvrage ne prétend pas interpréter ce qu'a écrit Althusser, et encore moins imaginer ce qu'il n'a pas écrit; il se suggest de lire ce qu'Althusser appelait lui-même des symptômes, et d'effectuer ensuite des déductions si des recoupements suffisamment nombreux le permettent. Les conséquences en sont examinées aussi bien en auront, dans le champ du "fantasme", qu'en aval, dans celui de l. a. "théorie", dès lors que le philosophe a donné des symptoms explicites qui autorisent cette démarche.
