    Abstract:
    Errors are a part of life and clinical mistakes are frequent. The author examines some of the ways that errors or mistakes permeate all areas of life, pointing out their frequency in human interaction, in research, in ordinary judgment, whether in daily largely trivial matters, or in significant matters of life and death. In some instances, a psychoanalyst might point out an unconscious motive for the errors, but in the history of psychoanalysis, clinical errors have often been shown to be beneficial to the treatment, to the extent that they enter into the psychoanalytic discourse. The author presents some clinical material drawn from his work with two supervisees.
    Notes:
    An overview of errors and mistakes, and a focus on clinical mistakes in psychoanalysis.
