COSTA, André Oliveira  and  MARINO, Adriana Simões. The hero in Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis: revolution and subversion. Psicol. USP [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.394-403. ISSN 0103-6564.

Although the hero does not receive a properly conceptual statute, the term is recurrent in Freudian and Lacanian thoughts inside the theoretical-clinical elaborations of Psychoanalysis. This study unfolds the meanings of hero according to the transformations of analytical metapsychology. From this, it brings two dimensions of the hero regarding the destinies of the subject inside civilization and its discontents: revolution, which is launched to a transformation in social bonds, but promotes the maintenance of the Father’s place; and subversion, which advances in an act that produces changes regarding the symbolic and imaginary coordinates that determines the subject.

Keywords : hero; revolution; subversion; psychoanalysis.
