Psychotherapy Preserves the Consistency of the Other, Psychoanalysis Does Not

More from J.A. Miller on the difference between psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in Pure Psychoanalysis, Applied Psychoanalysis, and Psychotherapy:

We preserve, in psychotherapy, the consistency of the Other, since what would be unique in the analytic position pertaining to psychoanalysis itself would be admitting the question of jouissance, would make the Other inconsistent.

This is really interesting to me.
