Their concept of truth corresponds to this correlation between knowledge and the real: "After all, the main reason we have to believe in the veracity of scientific findings at least the most established ones is due to the fact that they explain the coherence of our experience" Sokal and Bricmont, " Impostures Intelletuelles ", Ed.
Odile Jacob, page In other words, truth results from adjusting knowledge to the real. Scientific knowledge consists in knowing the laws and formulas to which it responds. This is not a shortcoming. This is how science works. It could not work in any other way. And because it is so I will be getting on a plane to go on holidays in a few days. What we have to see now is that it is also because science works this way that psychoanalysis exists. Let us go back now to our previous question.
How must we regard the frontier existing between knowledge and the real?
Psychoanalysis approaches the question the other way about. We shall try to see the real not starting from the symbolized, the "known", or, more precisely, starting from what does correspond to our knowledge, but rather from the not known, that which does not respond to our previous knowledge. That is, a negative definition of the real: that which is beyond the frontier reached by science. This frontier between the real and knowledge is what Lacan calls the subject of science.
Lacan places the appearance of this "subject of science" in the operation of Descartes. The famous "hypotheses non fingo" of Newton is "the key of the structure" J. Of course, with things presented in this way, those who do not know about psychoanalysis could wonder about the relevance of so vast and conceptual relations with regard to the clinic with their patients. On the eve of the one-hundred anniversary of the birth of psychoanalysis, it will be useful to remember that its fundamentals are an example of what has been exposed above.
For some time now, a debate about the truthfulness or falseness of memories having to do with sexual events during our childhood has been taking place in USA. This girl , impelled to recollection by her confessor in , "remembered" she had been raped by her father -- a parish priest -- when she was between 7 and 14 years old , and that she had been pregnant twice, having been forced to abort by her father.
Once the report became of public knowledge , her father had to quit his job. However , later medical examinations , carried out as part of the legal proceedings , showed that Beth Rutherford was still a virgin. Then in , this woman sued his confessor who was sentenced.
There have also been some other similar cases , but involving psychotherapists who have also ended up in court. In all cases , the posture consists in ordering the memories in a true or false sphere defined according to the adjustment to the events. Just by searching with "False Memory Syndrome" in Altavista or any other browsers you will find dozens and dozens of links. Particularly , you can consult the bibliographical references and investigations made by Ph.
And the attitude of those involved in the legal proceedings as well as of the professional associations which have stated their position as regards that topic is based in the idea of a knowledge of a scientific kind. That is why they have been "driven crazy" by the respective hysterics of each of these cases; in the same way, more than a century ago, medical doctors from so many other countries and thanks to so many other hysterics used to "go crazy".
The hysterics have always shown themselves as suffering from a series of disturbances which always escape such scientific knowledge. Let us remember the way in which Freud starts his "listening" [escucha] of hysteria. It is one of his first works on the subject even before the creation of psychoanalysis as such , in which, through a comparative study between the organic and hysterical motor paralyses, he established that the hysterical ones do not represent the anatomy and many times they are presented " in direct conflict with the rules of the organic cerebral palsy ".
The loss caused by the hysterical paralysis on the body does not follow the rules of the anatomy but the loss of the ordinary language : "the trivial and popular conception of the organs, and of the body in general, is the one that is at stake in the hysterical paralyses , the same as in the anesthetics , etc.
Amorrortu, Tomo 1, page In other words, how can one fall ill due to a language problem? What is important to understand about this is that the hysterical symptom is presented in a way in which the real does not behave according to the knowledge there is about it.
And this is not because of a wrong or false knowledge. It is worthless to deduce a new biological anatomy from a hysterical symptom.

What is worth deducing from it is what experience dictated Freud: "The injury would then be the abolition of the associative accessibility of the conception of the arm. This limb behaves as if it did not exist as regards the play of association [juego de las asociaciones] It could not be cured neither with medicine nor with actual operations on the body; yet, it could be cured by letting the patient speak, in order to , from that talk , deduce the logical scheme that keeps some words away from the global functioning of the rest.
In that sense, the hysterical symptoms are the best representatives of what Lacan suggests as the subject of science. So as to bear in mind the links between the apparently abstract or theoretical arguments of Lacan and, for example, these first Freudian references, one should remember that the relation of psychoanalysis and science has always been through Medicine , since psychoanalysis has always been classified as an practice in relation to what we can broadly defined as the domain of mental health.
Medicine , particularly psychiatry, is the one presented in such domain as the representative of science see, on this point, lesson 2.

And hysteria is what, in such domain, presents itself as a real which does not allow to be reduced to scientific knowledge. Whenever Lacan sets out different aspects having to do with science, he does not consider Psychiatry. When he refers to the "subject of science" , he is not obviously speaking about black holes from Spatial Physics or the like, but about this essentially clinical aspect.
What is really important to understand about this discovery made by psychoanalysis and its own constitution is but the outcome, in a negative way, of the development of modern science and of the extension of the latter as a way of taking the real to the whole sphere of human life. Previous to modern science, the mental issues, as many other things, were considered differently.
And the way hysteria was dealt with was obviously different exorcisms, etc.
