  • Gerhard Schneider: Es gibt nicht das Wahre im Unwahren, wohl aber das Richtige im Falschen. Über Fehler, Probleme, die sie machen, und Fehler-Leistungen in der Psychoanalyse [Abstract]{This paper addresses the issue of a psychoanalytic culture of failures. Firstly it discusses several categories of failures in psychoanalytic treatments. Secondly, the essay examines the assertion that failures in treatment cannot be avoided. The crucial point thereby is that enactments of countertransference are inevitable. Thirdly, the paper distinguishes between productive and unproductive failures. Productive failures are important because they set the psychoanalytic process going again. One may thus speak of failures achieving progress, or even of a via negativa (Hinshelwood) of psychoanalytic expertise. However, there are also insuper able limits with respect to the cultivation of failures. Finally, the impact of failures on the treatment of severely disturbed patients is discussed. For such patients, treatments based on the psychoanalytic paradigm may even prove to be dangerous. The analyst also risks confronting limits in an existentially threaten ing way. Thus, before offering a treatment to such patients, it is recommended that the analyst reflects on his or her capacity to endure a patient and to assess the chances of success by fulfilling additional setting requirements.}}
