Reference is made to the article on "a psychoanalyst’s mind" maintenance and the emergence of the subject of the unconscious within a group, that is, shared psychic space where unconscious alliances take shape between the members of a group. Specifically, the authors refer to a group of psychoanalysts and group analysts. Particular attention is given to the word "foibe", which is interpreted here as a slip of the tongue. The meaning of this Italian word changes according to its use in the singular or plural form: moreover, it is very similar to the word "fobia", that is, phobia, what was probably referred to in that context. In the article, it is not clear what the real meaning of that word should be. We believe this minor remark hints at the subject of the unconscious in the group as described by René Kaës.
Keywords: Group subject, Peer work, Analyst’s mind, Phobia, Foibe.
