LOFFREDO, Ana Maria. Notes on the Freudian conception of anxiety. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.1, pp. 105-130. ISSN 0101-4838.

This article belongs to the field of history and epistemology of psychoanalysis, specifically to research on the conceptual genealogy pertaining to the construction of Freudian metapsychology of anguish. It aims to present the main arguments that allow us to discuss that theories contained in Freud's work on anxiety are not exclusive and may be considered, as a whole, a single explanatory model that would encompass the various stages of production on anxiety. This paper intends to examine the barriers that can be seized in the Freudian formulations, under what is conceived, since Freud, as a "second theory of anxiety".

Keywords : anxiety; Freud; Freudian metapsychology; repression.
