Read abstract
in spanish

Leonardo Gorostiza evoca el destino en su relación con la contingencia. Insiste en la importancia de que un analista elucide esta cuestión en su propio análisis. En su testimonio de AE[1], aísla lo que llamó "un calzador sin medida", no como un real sino como un nombre de lo real; se sirve de éste para alivianar la marca del trauma. Este nombre hace lazo con la contingencia de la marca inicial, que persiste como resto con el que hay que arreglárselas.

  1. Analista de la Escuela
in english

Leonardo Gorostiza evokes the destiny of his relation to contingency. He insists on the importance, for an analyst, of elucidating this question in one's own analysis. In his testimony as Analyst of the School, he isolates « a measureless-shoehorn », not only as a real, but also as a name of the real. He makes use of this name to reduce the mark of the trauma. This name links to the contingency of the initial mark that leaves a remainder that requires knowing how to make do with it.
