MORGENSTERN, Ada. The wave: diving into helplessness. Ide (São Paulo) [online]. 2010, vol.33, n.51, pp. 63-81. ISSN 0101-3106.
The starting point of this paper is a specific aesthetical reception experience and it intends to go through the path of the construction of meanings which this particular experience has facilitated. The article makes a singular cut out of the concept of helplessness. In order to study this concept, the author studies some conceptual unfolding in Freud’s theory as well as in some of his interlocutors. At the end, it investigates possible relationships between art and helplessness. This paper discusses possibilities of dialogue between art and psychoanalysis.
