This important book argues that apres-coup, a concept that has blossomed in French psychoanalytic discourse, not only allows an understanding of how repressed early memories determine adult life, and how human sexuality develops, but also allows for a richer and wider explanation of our mental structures and thinking.

The book outlines how apres-coup has been understood and defined by Freud, Lacan and other authors, considers it in diverse psychoanalytic cultures and explores its resonance in dream-work, sexual drives, thought, and the experience of trauma. Bernard Chervet considers that the totality of human thought can be approached according to the theory of apres-coup. It offers a metapsychological approach to the operation of apres-coup, bodily erogeneity and the regeneration of libido. Chervet's compelling work argues that the phenomenon of apres-coup allowed for the development of the psychoanalytic theories of causality, sexuality, temporality, memory and trauma.

Illustrated by clinical vignettes and written by one of the leading theorists on the topic, Apres-coup in Psychoanalysis will be an invaluable resource for psychoanalysts in training and in practice.
