Unpublished manuscripts by Jean-Martin Charcot have been discovered at the Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris. This was due to the epistemophilic drive of the researcher and librarians at the Bibliothèque Charcot, which is a characteristic of childhood sexuality and is essential in scientific research. The transcription, translation, and writing of the case study is analyzed, in this paper, based on the Freudian concepts of transference and sexuality, as well as on the transference relationship between the researcher who found the manuscripts and the father of psychoanalysis and, in turn, Freud's relationship to his master, Charcot, the father of neurology. The investigative trail that Charcot pursued proposes that hysteria, as well as traumatic events, makes up the etiological basis for multiple sclerosis. Charcot's patient's trajectory, which is marked by her writings, is also effected by the transference relations she established and by her sexuality. The symptoms on Joséphhine Leruth's body - she who was diagnosed with MS - present with signs of amelioration, as a function of the transference relationship she had established with Charcot.

Keywords : research; writing; transference; sexuality.
