FORTES, Isabel. A dimensão do excesso: Bataille e Freud. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.1, pp.9-22. ISSN 1516-1498.

The dimension of the excess: Bataille and Freud. Freudian theories are linked to Bataille's work, whose thought brings important considerations for the economical Freudian dimension. The intention is that this correlation can be made through the term pressure, present in both authors. The main argument of the article is that there is a permanent pressure originated from an excess which bothers the living organisms, therefore resulting in the demand of the waste, the use and the discharge. In respect to psychoanalysis, this ravage occurs under the form of stimuli domination, the main function of the psychic apparatus, whether it is done through the discharge of energy, whether it is done by psychic elaboration.

Keywords : Excess; waste; instinct; Freud; Bataille.
