Abstract

“Ja, Gestigkeit ist (hier) alles!” – “Yes, (here) the spirit is everything!” - is the fleeting and surprising joke that in September 1927 Sigmund Freud addressed to Binswanger when, in the face of a substantial failure of the analytical treatment of a common patient, he had to agree on the need to think of the action of a "spiritual" component (in the sense of a possible transcendental subjectivity) in the dynamics of psychoanalytic insight. In the background of this observation, this contribution aims to attempt, through the use of the philosophical-psychological category of Geistigkeit (and Geist in general), to be a sort of "dialectical mediation" between classical psychoanalysis (Freud) and psychiatric phenomenology (Binswanger), whose resolution – far from being considered complete – seems to find in Jung and his analytical psychology a privileged term of reference.
