BASTOS, Rogério Lustosa. Psychoanalysis and the scientifc thinking: between the phsysicism and/or the counter-science in different ways of subjectivity. Psicol. USP [online]. 2001, vol.12, n.1, pp.89-119. ISSN 1678-5177. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65642001000100005.
Discussing psychoanalysis, from its insertion in the language and in the Human Sciences, chiefly focusing on Foucault, this article calls in question its nearness and farness regarding the scientific thinking. Thus, mainly analyzing it in its interconnections to the contemporaneous subjectivity, it will be highlighted that such discipline not only stands off from the basic parameters of the classical scientific thinking, but also lays itself as an aside Science, or rather, as a counter-science. Such feature, besides the vocation for clinical psychology, puts it into relief as a discipline which offers other important contributions, being them in the aesthetics field, in the epistemology, in the authorship, which is multiple, and in the humanities as a whole.
