KLEIN, Thais  and  HERZOG, Regina. Inhibition, symptom and fear? Notes on Angst within psychoanalysis. Rev. latinoam. psicopatol. fundam. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.4, pp.686-704. ISSN 1415-4714.

Based on questions posed by Renato Zwick's recent translation of “Hemmung, Symptom und Angst” to “Inibição, Sintoma e Medo” (inhibitions, symptoms and fear) (Freud, 1926/2016), this paper's goal is to highlight two dimensions of Angst that do not correspond to a same word in Portuguese. Following a theoretical overview of Freud's main texts on this subject, panic disorder is discussed in the fields of contemporary psychopathology and clinical practice, emphasizing these two affective dimensions.

Keywords : Fear; panic disorder; clinical practice; psychoanalysis.
