The author has developed a dynamic approach to psychosis, based on the dialectics of forms. In the case of a borderline patient, it was possible to integrate an hysterical hallucination with the aid of the structurizing power of the mirror.

L'auteur a mis au point un accès dynamique à la psychose à partir d'une dialectique des formes. Chez une malade ‘borderline’, une hallucination hystérique a pu ětre intégrée grâce aux forces structurantes du miroir.
