Psychoanalysis differs from any other practice also
because it makes a different use of the transference. Transference is what ties one
person to another. At the same time, it makes the relationship irreducible to the two persons; it indicates that there is more. It is what makes possible to address a question to someone.
Transference is not just the repetition of a past relationship. Transference is
not an accident; it is at the same time the motor and the resistance of a cure.
It is what allows a process to begin, but at the same time it may be what
opposes to this process to produce a change. In psychoanalysis the transference
is considered by the psychoanalyst. He or she should be aware of the
transference, and should be aware that it is more important the position where
s/he speaks from, than the content of his/her words. Being a psychoanalyst
means that one is occupying a particular position in someone’s discourse, and
this position should be preserved. A psychoanalyst cannot really believe to
master some specific knowledge or technique. A psychoanalyst occupies an empty
place, and this emptiness is what provokes the analysand to produce
his/her knowledge. The analyst should resist the temptation to feed the client,
to answer him/her. Instead, the position of the analyst should be preserved,
because the analyst works at the one to whom a question can be addressed.
