LAMBRECHT, Marta Úrsula. The non-human first-born element in a baby observation context. J. psicanal. [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.72, pp. 103-112. ISSN 0103-5835.
From the diverse range of situations presented before the observer’s eyes during each meeting in the babies’ home, imaginative conjectures will be proposed in the psychoanalytic observational context, in order for them to be thought by other minds. In the clinical material here illustrated, the family context had a non-human component permanently present that awake and animate feelings and phantasies. It requested the attention of the mother, the babies and the observer, establishing with them a rich verbal and non-verbal dialogue. For its peculiar charisma and tenderness and, being an external representative of the primitive mental world, it is enclosed, in ludic fashion, as part of a functional unit.
