The author starts from an anthropological premise and then uses some clinical windows to propose some reflections on the use of digital tools and their possible effect on the one hand in the development of mental processes, on the other in the transformation of some social assets. The cases of two adolescents who have as their main symptom the massive use of the net, mostly through social network, are analyzed, resulting in a state of isolation and withdrawal. The first is compared with a fragment of infant observation, the second with a case of a psychosomatic patient. The autor’s thesis is that the so-called internet addictions can be framed as digital somatosis and treated according to the theories and the clinical approach known for the pathologies of the mind-body system. This assuming that the network can become, in such cases, a psychic place in which what is non representable is placed, a place similar to the somatic from which one cannot free oneself under pain of disintegration.
Keywords: digital, emotion, mind-body, primitive mental states.
