Un inédit de L. Kanner : sur deux applications opposées de la notion de métaphore aux psychoses

Abstract : Leo Kanner’s accurate and pathbreaking description of child autism in 1943 has brought him fame in the domain of child psychiatry, but his interest for early language disorders is not so well-known. We discuss his 1946 paper “Irrelevant and metaphorical language in early infantile autism” in which, drawing on his clinical experience, attempts to bring out the uniqueness of language disorders in autism. We clarify what sort of choice he has taken in doing so, and show that he has left aside the contemporary “continental” concepts of metaphor, which implied a capacity for metalanguage.
