PERENA GARCIA, Francisco. Notes for an infantile psycopathology. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.2, pp.255-269. ISSN 2340-2733.

This text deals with the difficulty of constructing a psychopathology including subjectivity. It explains the epistemological criteria which have prevailed in the institutionalization of child's psychopathology, and it discusses the problem of a clinical practice which is aimed at the construction of subjectivity and the formation of the self. For this purpose, three key issues of the metaphorisation's process will be analyzed: the experience of knowledge, love and the word.

Keywords : Structure; Development; Drive; Clinical Phenomenon; Syndrome; Symptom; Metaphor; Absence; Lost.
