This contribution starts from observing that psychoanalysis is, above all, a particular experience that produces, in those who practices it, a different way of staying inside the experience in general. From here, there is also the need of resuming the philosophical discourse afterward or through the analytical experience, in order to question precisely what hinders always the path of experience: the punctum or the symptom that supports both the philosopher and the analyst in their mutual search by hindering them. The crossing of the knowledge’s supposition that gives consistency to the subject offers us a new consistency that, on the decline of the Other of the Other and of knowledge, passes to the object. Object a that, in its absolute partiality, poses the thought to the effort of thinking the Thing beyond its phantasmatic imaginarisation: instead of the Thing, the object; instead of the Father, the writing. This opens the field of experience that the analysis discloses. Beyond the representation, and on the structural decompletion of the Other, it is a matter of practicing another knowledge whose ground is only the enjoyment that supports the singularity. A knowledge-enjoyment that is produced on the other side of knowledge-power: this is the path that philosopher and psychoanalyst can undertake in parallel.
