ESCARS, Carlos J.. The case history and the insufficiency of the plot. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2002, vol.5, n.1, pp.33-44. ISSN 1809-4414.

Starting from the question on the relation between the transmission of psychoanalysis and the structure of case histories two views on the nature of case histories are presented. One maintains that these texts must point to the transparent transmission of the facts that arise during the analysis, and the other emphasizes its narrative dimension as a Report, with a plot which would provide coherence. This paper propounds that for psychoanalysis the plot is always inaccurate, and refers to the Freudian ways of making it evident: the emphasis on the fragmentary and a peculiar way of enunciation. The paper ends with a question about the strategies which every analyst must pursue to include in the narrative of cases what is irreducible to it.
