This clinical roundtable features a presentation by Dorothée Bonnigal‐Katz who posits the impairment of the mechanisms of repression as characteristic of psychosis and discusses its consequences for the analyst, especially as regards the place of interpretation. She shows how the analyst's encounter with the psychotic experience radically challenges and paradoxically validates psychoanalytic technique. In response to Bonnigal‐Katz's discussion, Tomasz Fortuna offers an overview of the psychoanalytic tradition's response to psychosis, raising the issue of the relation between psychosis and neurosis. Christos Tombras, on the other hand, invokes Freud's discussion of Schreber's Memoirs from a Lacanian perspective and addresses the question of language and experience.
