RABELO, Fabiano Chagas. On the legacy of Breuer and Anna O.. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2011, vol.43, n.2, pp. 391-407. ISSN 0101-4838.
This paper investigates the association between Breuer and Freud around the treatment of Anna O. We situate Breuer's legacy in two modalities: a technical modality, represented by the cathartic method's procedures, and a result's modality, characterized by the product of the application of this technique. Regarding the results, we underline a more intensive interest of Freud for fragmented and lateral indications that emerge from Breuer's text rather than for Breuer's theorization itself. In this transmission, mistakes, gaps and lapses are extremely important. Freud, for his part, was not only able to hear these statements, but also to accept them and elaborate them in his practice.
