THOMAS, Marie-Claude. A return to psychic causality?. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2011, vol.43, n.1, pp. 173-197. ISSN 0101-4838.

The author's objective is to discuss a tendency that seems to her current among psychoanalysts: the cession of the psychoanalytic field to neurosciences, as if it lacked its own foundations. Taking Gerard Pommier's book Comment les neurosciences démontrent la psychanalyse as a paradigm of this reductionist position, the author criticizes it. To consider that neurology could explain the psychic represents not only a reduction of psychoanalytic knowledge as such, but an impoverishment of the Freudian concept of unconscious, which is thus provided with a physical existence: "the mental".

Palavras-chave : psychoanalisis; neurociences; psychic causality.
