KLEIN, Thais; VERZTMAN, Julio Sergio  and  PACHECO-FERREIRA, Fernanda. Does anthropology contribute to research in psychoanalysis? Dialogues between perspectivism and psychoanalytic experience. Psicol. USP [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.404-411. ISSN 0103-6564.

This article intends to discuss the implications of certain questions posed by Amerindian perspectivism to psychoanalytical experience. That’s because a central question of perspectivism raised by Viveiros de Castro can be transposed to the field of psychoanalysis: how to create conditions for ontological self-determination of the other when we all have our ontological presuppositions? Following the author’s claim that the anthropologist should make a good enough description, an articulation is traced with the experience in psychoanalysis from considerations raised by Winnicott’s theory. Finally, to illustrate the discussed issues, an experience report in clinical research is presented.

Keywords : research; anthropology; psychoanalysis; clinic.
