Presentation of the objectives of the Association 


The Association wishes to constitute the synthesis of a dual dynamic of research, that of the history of psychoanalysis and of its interactions with other fields of knowledge.

These two fields have been investigated, respectively, through publications and conferences in the IAIP (non-profit organization) and the research group "Interactions of Psychoanalysis" (University Research Team Paris 7 Denis Diderot).

The A2IP proposes to continue this work based on an extension of its scope, which now includes the study of the relationships of psychoanalysis with other fields of knowledge. Therefore, its vision is not only historical but also prospective, giving psychoanalysis its place in the present and in the horizon of civilizations.

This perspective, which was already that of Freud in 1913 (Das Interesse an der Psychoanalyse), is based on a university research group, established in 1990 at the University Paris 7 by Pr S. de Mijolla-Mellor, named "Interactions of Psychoanalysis", affiliated with the Graduate School "Research in Psychoanalysis and Psychopathology" at the University of Paris Diderot.

This group has fostered many studies and publications, it has organized national and international conferences and established international links with several foreign universities with which it has been working regularly ever since.

Since the beginning, its identity relies on the concept of interdisciplinarity as it appears today more than ever as necessary to advance research.

The common axis that brings together the researches conducted within this group is epistemological, aiming to study, in all of their forms, the effects within psychoanalysis of the importation of models from several human sciences and fields of the culture. It is therefore not "applied psychoanalysis", but a new approach taking into account not only the impact and implications of the Freudian discovery of the unconscious within the Human Sciences, but also the effects the models specific to these areas have on psychoanalysis itself, as a method and theory of cure.

Thus we will work the mutual penetration of the concepts, the specificity of the fields of knowledge, their eventual impermeability and therefore the potential limitations of these interactions.


The focal areas an extension of this research that will lead to :

  • Bi-annual scientific conferences.
  • One international symposium every two years or more.
  • Seminars and work groups monthly or bimonthly.


IAIP’s researches will be regularly published in the journal TOPIQUE (journal skills by scientific standards which publishes four volumes per year.
