"Il termine dell’analisi. Wittgenstein lettore di Freud"
Abstract: The present article intends to describe the debt of Wittgenstein concerning Freud while at the same time exposing his original attempt to go beyond the anthropology supporting the Freudian argument. The problem under exam is determining the moment to end the psychoanalytical therapy: not only, and not just an epistemological crucial point, in as much as a fundamental anthropological question, touching the ethical and political problem of authority. Wittgenstein opposes the fundamental ethical attitude of a recognition of differences, of transparency and the opacity that every human being incarnates in his saying, doing and being, with the reductionist illusion of resolving the so-called “higher problems” thanks to future scientic discoveries. The relationship between therapist and patient becomes thus the paradigm of a way to understand relationships between mankind which invoke the responsibility of each one, our ability to understand when reasoning becomes futile, when it is time to decide whether to fight or accept the other.
