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.
