CECCARELLI, Paulo Roberto. Psychoanalysis at the crime scene. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp. 401-418. ISSN 0101-4838.

The author discusses the relationship between psychoanalysis and criminology. A brief digression on the origins of criminology based on the reference work of Lombroso is presented. The first participation of psychoanalysis at the crime scene occurs when, in early twentieth century, Freud presented a lecture on psychoanalysis and legal facts, bringing forward the psychoanalytical point of view on criminology. Various contributions of other psychoanalysts on criminology and guilt are discussed, which leads to a brief digression about the pathos, the excess that could lead to crime. Finally, the author makes some considerations on the complexity of the psychological dynamics involved in the criminal act, which can only be understood when the unconscious scenarios are considered.

Palavras-chave : criminology; psychoanalysis; guilt; pathos; unconscious.
