La passion amoureuse : entre mythe et réalité

Abstract : Our work consists in studying the function of love passion in the everyday life and reality of individual... We would like to show the positive aspect of it, as it can be stimulating, motivating for all of us. So, it is necessary to wander passion from its pathological context, and to elaborate everyone's search of passion. To do so, we had to express theoretical assumptions concerning its etiology, through clinical analysis of characters in mythical work as : Tristan et Iseult, Roméo et Juliette, Les Liaisons dangereuses. Passion condenses these topics : possivity, destruction, transgression, lack, guiltiness, death... Passion reactivate primary processes in archaïc relation concerning feelings of potency and impotence. The passionate subject lives for a while in a narcissism by procuration, a fusional search, an omnipotence. From that, we showed, by means of interviews and personality tests on seven individuals, passion stake in reality, phantasm, human thoughts. Some subjects accept it, some do not for different reasons like fear of dependance, loss of self-control. Nevertheless, even if some subjects do not dose to involve themselves in passion, they need it as mobilization of pulsional energy and stand out that need on literary or cinematographic characters. Fascination for works relating strong passions can be explained by search of absolute perfection, limits, impossible desire, emergence of unconscious phenomenons.
