The following are the diagnostic categories generally accepted in the Freudian field, although there is no unanimity as to exact definitions: 1. Paranoia, whose existence as one of the psychoses of childhood is maintained, contrary to the opinion of non-psychoanalytic psychiatry.

In psychosis, as jouissance is literally the Other's jouissance, it invades the subject and becomes a compulsory and compulsive torment for him. In paranoia and schizophrenia, the Other occupies the position of an absolute Other, and the subject, recognizing a lack in the Other but an unsymbolized one, attempts to complete the Other, since the Other's lack is unbearable, experienced as the destruction of the Other. This completion is achieved by the subject becoming the object of the Other's jouissance, the plaything of the Other.

The object a is materialized in the partial objects of the breast, the faeces, the voice and the gaze, which are 'parts of the body', cut from the body, through the operation of the signifier.
