MATIAS, Hugo Juliano Duarte. From hamartia as fault and the tragic dimension of life in psychoanalysis. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp.79-94. ISSN 1809-4414.

This paper presents elements in the Freudian thought to point how his theory not only accepts and contains considerations about tragedy, but also locates the psyche in a theoretical system that depends on the tragic meaning of life. Some aspects of Freud's work links with Sophocles' text - Oedipus Tyrannus - and are considered to clarify this dimension of the Freudian thought and lead to a construction of a dialogue between Freud Aristotle. The Aristotelian concept of, fault, is the nucleus of a possible articulation of his conception of tragedy and what concerns the tragic dimension of life in the Freudian thought.

Keywords : Tragic guilt; Freudian methapsychology; hamartia.
