Carlos Alexandre Araújo Benício da Costa e Silva

The present work seeks, essentially, to present the initial relationships between Freud's concepts of interpretation and transference. In constant articulations of the Freudian method with perspectives from current authors, the scope was delimited and crucial transformations and technical inflections were highlighted along the Freudian path. Starting with a retrospective focus of technical progress produced by Freud, towards the consolidation of the interpretive method, arguing: the evolution of the psychoanalytic technique and its limits, how the initial relationships between notions of interpretation and transference, and the very effectiveness of interpretation as a technical resource. The text also provides important subsidies and aids in pointing out significant issues of the psychoanalytic framework, contemplating (1) the reason for which the psyche is so often proved impenetrable from interpretations, (2) how the withdrawal of repressed material moves the affection, (3) how the interpretations in Psychoanalysis are formed, and (4) how the boundaries of technical evolution of Psychoanalysis are drawn.
