Ainsi peut-il suivre, chez son sufferer, l. a. dynamique du processus érotique. D'autres elements théoriques sont également abordés, notamment, sur cette query de l. a. sexualité, l. a. war of words de l'interprétation psychanalytique avec les données de l'anthropologie et de l. a. biologie. Cet essai incisif dessine de nouveaux horizons pour los angeles psychanalyse. André eco-friendly, psychanalyste et psychiatre, a publié l. a. Causalité psychique aux Éditions Odile Jacob.
