Abstract

RUDGE, Ana Maria. Voice in love. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.2, pp. 169-177. ISSN 0103-5665.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-56652010000200011.

What does love owe to the drives? Specially, what does love owe to voice as an object cause of desire? The connection of the drive objects to love is clear. The expression "love at first sight", for instance, already insinuates the bond of love with the glance. What is the role of voice, as the object of the invocation drive, in love? Although the intimate relationship between the drives and love is undeniable, it is complex. Freud showed that love does not find its place in the field of the drives, because it doesn't share the characteristic of being partial, but, on the contrary, it is the "expression of the whole sexual current of feeling". The voice as an early object is central to love, but as an object cause of desire it is also responsible for its quality of compulsion.

Keywords : love; invocation drive; voice.
