CASTRO, Juliana de Miranda e  and  LO BIANCO, Anna Carolina. The discipline of reading: rhythm and the oral dimension in the 'voice' of the text. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.spe, pp. 89-94. ISSN 1807-0310.

Taking into account that psychoanalytic practice involves a careful way of reading, the present article approaches the listening of what is said as part of the reading of a text. It uses the concepts of Meschonnic to circumscribe a fundamental element: the oral dimension which is considered the 'voice' of a text. This dimension helps the text to maintain a live characteristic as well as its enunciation which leads to the unconscious. It uses the notion of rhythm that implies a scansion made in the text that makes for the appearance of the voice. It then emphasizes that a rhythm can be attached to the treatment, in accordance to Czermak, which implies a strict discipline of reading. From that point the conditions are offered to a subject for him/her to occupy an ethical position that implies becoming subjected to the voice of his/her own text.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; reading; rhythm; 'voice' of the text; subject.
