PINTO, Jeferson Machado. The academic institution and the legitimation of the scientific vocation of psychoanalysis. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 1999, vol.12, n.3, pp. 00-00. ISSN 1678-7153. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79721999000300009.
The present paper argues that the University has the function to legitimize the scientific vocation of psychoanalysis. The subject of psychoanalysis requires that it operates based on a presumed knowledge. It is up to the University to demonstrate its validity. This paper also warns about the ideological risks of the academic discourse and suggests that such discourse should be confronted continually with the analytical discourse.
