In this fiction, Sigmund Freud’s daughter, here named "Psychoanalysis", wants to undergo another tranche of analysis and lays on the couch. She claims of suffering of an "identity crisis", is not sure of who her loyal lovers are and of the correct interpretation of her father’s papers. On the one hand, she thinks that Freud believed that psychoanalysis was a sort of "no man’s land", borderline; on the other, Freud conceived psychoanalysis as part of the Enlightenment project (Aufklärung). Freud’s daughter, always on the couch, wonders if the Enlightenment project is still valid, also in its psychoanalytic version. Far from Kant’s definition and criticized by the Frankfurt School (the Dialectic of Enlightenment by Horkheimer and Adorno), Enlightenment entered into a crisis, as shown by phenomena such as German Fascism and Holocaust, the demise of Socialist project and of the utopias, ecological crisis, "postmodern" critique, the return of religion in a globalized world.
