Re: second part of the answer

There. That is what I wanted to know, and this is where we part company. I ask for this discussion to stop, since I know what I think and you have just stated (in a fairly dogmatic form, although I have no doubt that you could present it in a more nuanced way and defend it with some intelligence) a viewpoint that contradicts mine, though I am aware it is highly popular in American (and British) academia. I have no desire to go further, since we could only deepen our contradiction.

Only one thing: where did I speak of "traumatic events"? I do not believe in the importance of events. I find it easier to believe that a person may be born with a profound disconnection in his/her nature, as with distorted legs or (as sometimes happens) three or four breasts; but what matters is not the event, not even the origin, but the permanent condition that arises. I am no Freudian, to go explore the mysteries of my potty-training and the unconscious failures of my early food intake to justify the shape of my soul today.
