: Perhaps the use of the term "determinism" is not very precise. However, any model of the "subject" is necessarily deterministic. Recall Althusser's characterization of the transformation from the individual to the subject. To posit the individual as subject, is to designate she/he as a site of a multiplicity of often competing or contradictory forces. The question, of course, is what degree of reflection does the model allow? Thus we can redirect your question concerning psychoanalysis to one of "repression management."

I find what you say very interesting and want to just
highlight the last sentence and retitle it accordingly.

There are only two subsequent questions:
why do people then go to shrinks and perceive it as
liberating? Are they all masochists?

question two:
could you imagine any practice dealing with what
Foucault calls 'the care for oneself' that escapes
