NEVES, Tiago Iwasawa. The universalism of cure in Freud. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.1, pp.21-29.  Epub Jan 24, 2020. ISSN 1809-4414.

The objective is to demonstrate that the discussion about cure is central to the emergence of psychoanalysis between the clinical and psychotherapeutic tradition. In addition to a clinic or psychotherapy, psychoanalysis must be recognized as a cure experience. Finally, we will propose that, by affirming the cure as the realization of a singular experience, Freudian psychoanalysis establishes a proposal of universal healing: in each singular realization of healing we will not have the integration of the singularity into any totality. Cure as the realization of a singular experience will not be identical to anything.

Keywords : cure; universal; Freud; psychoanalysis.
