The author intends to outline the role that psychotherapy, self-analysis, and self-criticism exert under Ethics, to regenerate those aspects of it that at some point become sclerotized and frustrating for those who follow the principles. It emphasizes in the first place the ability of psychoanalysis to seize the double face, civilizing, but also frustrating ethical principles. In the first paragraph, following Edgar Morin’s reflections, he points out how human-made ideas end up transforming into their obsessions. In the second, the author examines the path that enables the subject to formulate an auto-ethics critically based on self-analysis. The third paragraph highlights the role of conscious psychic culture to depict the dogmas of traditional ethical approaches.
