piv : Freud’s work is divided into two topographies, separated by an intermediate moment (1914-1915) where the necessity is asserted of passing from the first to the second.

There are three topological chapters in the teaching of Lacan, related to three mathematical varieties: graphs (1953-1961), surfaces (1961-1971), and knots (1972-1981)

The Antithetical Meaning of Primal Words : 1910e : Sigmund Freud

The Antithetical Meaning of Primal Words is a review of the pamphlet by Karl Abel, bearing the same title. The dream interpreters of antiquity have made use of the notion that a thing in a dream can mean its opposite. The dream work disregards negation and employs the same means of representation for expressing contraries. The behavior of the dream work is identical with a peculiarity in the oldest languages known to us. In the Egyptian language, there are a number of words with 2 meanings, one of which is the exact opposite of the other. Of all the eccentricities of the Egyptian vocabulary, perhaps the most extraordinary feature is that, quite apart from the words that combine antithetical meanings, it possesses other compound words in which 2 vocables of antithetical meanings are united so as to form a compound which bears the meaning of only 1 of its 2 constituents. According to Abel, it is in the oldest roots that antithetical double meanings are found to occur. in the subsequent course of the language’s development this ambiguity disappeared and, in Ancient Egyptian at any rate, all the intermediate stages can be followed, down to the unambiguousness of modern vocabularies. The concepts which could only be arrived at by means of an antithesis became, in course of time, sufficiently familiar to men’s minds to make an independent existence possible for each of their 2 parts and accordingly to enable a separate phonetic representative to be formed for each part.
