The author opens the article by analyzing the expression „an impossible“ profession emerging twice in two different papers by Sigmund Freud. First, in the Foreword to Aichhorn’s Vewahrlostc Jugend (1925) and then, in the essay Die endliche und dic unendliche Analyse (1937). The second part of the present article deals with the current interpretation of Freud’s bon mot linking three different professions: those of government, cure and education. She thus introduces three important issues, i. e. power, clinics and ethics.
