ARAGON, Luis Eduardo Ponciano. The denseness of interface. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2003, vol.7, n.12, pp.11-22. ISSN 1414-3283.

Relying on the cartographic method, this article proposes an analysis of the contemporary element of Medicine, by means of its interface with psychoanalysis. The cartographic method was chosen to avoid both the perspective of dialectical analysis and the isolation of the "observer" relative to the observed object. The medical scene, being technological, is open to levels of communication/contamination that exceed the usual doctor/patient relation, so that it may support the complexity of interfaces, including unconscious and virtual elements. This complexity, when taken into account, implies in a particular ethic. What is proposed is the use of a so-called "near-concept" to aid in the cartographic task of determining the levels that interfacing comprises. There is a rejection of the voluntarism that leads to the production of "conduct manuals", in order to seek "energy lines" that cross contemporary space and the duo immersed in it, such lines being regarded as pre-individual.
