BEIVIDAS, Waldir. The excess of transference in psychoanalytic research. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 1999, vol.12, n.3, pp.00-00. ISSN 0102-7972.

Reflection about research in psychoanalysis generally focus on: (a) the mutual implications supposed to exist between the theoretical and clinical dimensions; (b) the discussion between psychoanalytical and "scientific" research, in which psychoanalysis in confronted with Cartesian, Experimentalist, Positivist, or Neo-Positivis models, among others. The present study intended to approach a field that has been poorly explored on this debate, aiming to demonstrate that Freudian psychoanalysis, specially with and beyond Lacan, was led to a "panicky surrender" to he a priori enunciation of the founder (Freud) or to the re-founder (Lacan). Research got entrapped on a web of excessive transference regulated by a Lacan dixit over a Freud dixit. I suggest that the way out of this puzzle is to conceptualize psychoanalytical research as a "structuring conceptualization" of the unconscious with Lacan and Freud rather than under Lacan and Freud.

Keywords : Structure; transference; Psychoanalysis.
