ID: <10670/1.ai1ozn>


`titrebLove You to Death. A Clinical Appraisal of Crimes of Passion`/titrebThis article is based on the analysis of a therapeutic follow-up in prison of a patient who had killed his girlfriend and explores the role of the object in passion. Thanks to the instinctual and sensorial involvement it triggers, the object allows the subject to maintain cathexis and protect him or herself from unsymbolized internal experiences. The subject resorts to action as a means of breaking loose from fusion with the object and thus from a melancholic position, but also of halting and symbolizing the return of non-historicised experiences.
