VEZZETTI, Hugo. Psychoanalysis and Marxism: the splitting of the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association (1971). Tempo soc. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.2, pp. 61-85. ISSN 0103-2070. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702009000200004.
The article looks at an unusual event in which the history of psychoanalysis and that of the Marxist left intersected: the resignation of two groups from the Argentine association on ideological grounds. Looking to go beyond the testimony of the protagonists and interrogate the accounts focusing on the event, the text explores the conditions and alternatives of this encounter between Freud and Marx from the 1960s onwards, particularly in academia (the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the UBA), in a professional organization (the Argentine Federation of Psychiatrists) and in political organizations active during the period (the Communist Party and revolutionary Peronism).
