RIBEIRO, Marina F. R.. From projective identification to the concept of the analytic third of Thomas Ogden: a psychoanalytic thought in search of an author. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.1, pp.57-65.  Epub Jan 24, 2020. ISSN 1809-4414.

Considering Thomas Ogden is one of the psychoanalysts representing the contemporary transmatrix psychoanalysis (FIGUEIREDO; COELHO JÚNIOR, 2018), the article presents the passage and transformation from the projective identification concept (KLEIN, 1946) into the analytic third (OGDEN, 1994) by means of the analysis and discussions of publications by the author, in which he makes articulations both with Winnicott’s and Bion’s concepts. To Ogden, concepts are metaphors which name different aspects of the mental functioning, and the conceptual transformations are, therefore, in the small changes in meaning, in the subtlety of the text and the diverse use of expressions.

Keywords : Thomas Ogden; projective identification; the analytic third; analytic field.
