In her work, Teresa Olmos de Paz reflects on some questions and concepts in contemporary psychoanalysis. She emphasizes that the aim of those reflections is to share some ideas among psychoanalysts, because nowadays, no analyst alone can give a global idea of what is considered problematic for contemporary psychoanalysis. Likewise, she highlights the importance of clarifying the concepts facing the diversity of enforced theoretical models in current psychoanalysis.
