CELES, Luiz Augusto. Temporality of trauma: genesis plus structure in Freudian thinking. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 1999, vol.12, n.3, pp. 00-00. ISSN 0102-7972.

This article interprets the temporalization of time in Freudian psychoanalysis, particularly on the analysis of the first trauma theory. Sexuality is shown to have a temporalizing function determined by its separating character and expressed in the term deferred-action,both in the progressive and regressive sense used by Freud. The symbolization implicated in the trauma theory and the repression are discriminated in their relations to temporality. The basis of Freudian thinking between genesis and structure is discussed, concluding with an evaluation of the deconstruction of Freud’s scientific heritage in psychoanalysis as founded by him.

Keywords : Genesis and structure; temporality in psychoanalysis; bases of Freudian thinking.
