MELICIAS, Ana Belchior. Sisyphus and Heracles: the work of the drive conflict. Ide (São Paulo) [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.65, pp. 139-156. ISSN 0101-3106.

The author starts from the polysemy of the word work and the analogy between the work of analysis and the spontaneous functioning of the psychic apparatus. It focuses on the passage from Freudian theory to Kleinian, and therefore on the conceptualization of life and death drives (Eros versus Thanatos, creativity versus envy) to approach, through the myths of Sisyphus and Heracles, the question of the articulation of drives. Its fusion-defusion with the predominance of one or the other is what characterizes the drive conflict, marking the respective qualities of the psychic work.

Palavras-chave : Work; Drive conflict; Sisyphus; Heracles.
