CAMARGO, Sabrina Gomes  e  SANTOS, Tania Coelho dos. The Wolf-man and the actuality of diagnostic uncertainty. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.2, pp. 477-502. ISSN 0101-4838.

This is a time of critical reappraisal of a major international diagnostic protocol. Psychoanalysts fear to promote a biologizing overview of the subject. The body of drive may be losing ground to the body of biology and there is a growing desire to regulate it. However, it is a time of questioning the scientific value of diagnosis in general and in particular of psychoanalytic diagnosis. In Freudian psychoanalysis, diagnosis is not based solely on the phenomena. Therefore, the case of the Wolf Man shows that even the most accurate classifications are insufficient. According to Miller, it is a case of ordinary psychosis. We have resumed the study of the case to show that Freudian diagnosis is based on the theory of the reversed Oedipus. Our hypothesis is that the Wolf Man's virility is pure semblance to hide a passive position, keeping him away from homosexuality. On the eve of its centennial, the reading of the Wolf Man is mandatory in the discussion of current diagnostic quarrels.
