The paper focuses on one of the most discussed issues in Elias' work, namely the representation of the medieval affective world in The Civilisation Process. Drawing on its ties with Freudian theory, the paper attempts to highlight the ambiguity existing between the accounts of the dynamics of the psyche in Elias and their treatment in the case of the medieval warrior. Then an attempt is made to elucidate some implicit consequences for those who intend, following Elias' path, to question the relations between sociogenesis and psychogenesis.
