Paper short abstract:

Quelle place donner à une clinique anthropologique ? Mythe et réalité : This communication will identify the role and limitations of clinical observations for anthropology.

Paper long abstract:

In particular, how from clinical observations of psychopathological states (such as aphasia, atechnia, psychosis and neurosis) we can elaborate an epistemological model for the human sciences. What is the role of the clinic in the model of the Theory of Mediation and for anthropo-logy more broadly. This paper will also explicitly discuss the parallels and relations between art and language.
