Conflict and border in the dynamics of the setting. Intersubjective proximity has its common conditions, but the setting that is created, between approximation, violation, margin, position, porosity, can give rise to emancipatory or destructive processes depending on how the game between conflict and border is managed and lived. Even in the clinical setting, both in couples and in groups, the border itself evokes its overcoming. That overcoming in turn recalls the conflict. The differences that approach and meet are in fact the basis of that particular texture that we can call a setting. Each setting is inhabited by crossing border regions where the typical tension of each approximation is observed. The conflict between the intolerance of borders experienced as a cage, the vital desire to overcome those borders, and at the same time the need for containment which, however, one cannot do without, draw the contingency of every relationship.

Keywords: intersubjectivity, origin, border, conflict, denial, emancipation.
