In this article we shall deal with the importance the transmission of psychoanalysis has in a mass media such as television, discussing to what extent this transmission, in television format, is possible respecting the essence of psychoanalysis, such as the becoming of man and its approach from the unconscious.
The use of fiction will be raised revolving round a crucial question: in what way can television series, by means of the audiovisual, transmit the distance between the display of subjectivity and daily fiction?
The essence of authenticity in psychoanalysis is given by the articulation between the setting and the contents dealt with in the therapeutic relationship. To detract from this schema could lead to distortion and fallacy. We hold that there is an incompatibility between psychoanalysis and the fallacy, extended like the different ways to distort the analytical contents while pretending to make them more popular. Using the series Be Tipul and its American and Argentine adaptations, we raise the question regarding how the original series set within the context of Israel, is adapted to American and Argentine realities, and the risks of not taking into account the issue of the potential distortion of the essence of psychoanalytic questions entails.
