Champ psy


Historically speaking, Corps & Psychisme is a continuation of the journal Champ Psychosomatique (Champ Psy), which itself started as a continuation of the Revue de médecine psychosomatique et de psychologie médicale, a journal founded in 1958 by the psychiatrists Michel Sapir and Léon Chertok. The evolution of the journal has led us to rename it in order to position it as a meeting point for psychoanalysis, medicine, anthropology, and the arts. It is published from Bordeaux by Esprit du Temps.

The journal was one of the first to focus on the body not in terms of an exclusively psychosomatic dimension but also by connecting with and exploring contemporary issues, politics, art, philosophy, and scientific discoveries. Moreover, the journal has maintained a desire for a psychoanalytic framework open to new avenues, especially when such a framework appeared to question concepts that are now dated. It therefore has an interdisciplinary perspective and seeks to bring about renewal in scientific conceptions of the body in its various links to the humanities.

Questions of a clinical nature appear in each issue: one of our constant priorities is to explore these via both the humanities and different artistic expressions and literature. In this respect, we follow the path charted by Freud.

Corps & Psychisme is a peer-reviewed, thematically focused journal that is published on a semiannual basis. Each issue features approximately ten articles, as well as literature reviews, critiques of one or several artistic events, and on some occasions an article that is unrelated to the issue’s theme but that has caught the attention of the Editorial Committee.

Our publication has been part of the community of academic journals for many years. The publications that it presents are in an academic format.

This journal is available in print at bookstores (to order) and through a subscription via Esprit du Temps (see the insert in each issue), and the digital version is available through a subscription to Cairn (which allows the purchase of single articles).
