BEIVIDAS, Waldir and RAVANELLO, Tiago. Language as alternative for the quantitative aspects in psychoanalysis. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.spe, pp.82-88. ISSN 0102-7182. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822009000400013.
The following article is included in a larger range research program that intents to explore the inner consequences of the hypothesis of the unconscious structured as a language if taken into account radically. This way, we highlight the problematics that involves the Freudian energetic concepts, specially the affect concept, and the risks that surround them and may lead to eventual undertaken projects of the psychoanalysis by the neurocientific theories. Therefore, instead of entering in the quantitative regime core presents since the beginning of the Freudian works and consequent nearings with neurocientific issues, we'll search to delimit the other approach possibility for the clinical and psychopathological events equally concernent to the psychoanalitic method: the exploration of language and meaning exploration.
