Although we are now less inclined to argue about whose treatment is entitled to be called psychoanalysis, we will understand current debates better if we revisualize what originally made psychoanalysis different from other treatments. At its birth, psychoanalysis twisted the common-sense treatments it grew out of into very peculiar shapes. In reaction to that extreme peculiarity, a process of normalizing began almost immediately and continues to this day. This process is illustrated by tracing the rise and fall of peculiarities in four aspects: medical procedure, the analyst’s vision, the analyst’s role, and the sense of time.
Keywords: Freud’s papers on technique, modern revisions in psychoanalysis, memory retrieval, cause and meaning, time in psychoanalysis
