FORTES, Isabel; WINOGRAD, Monah  e  MEDEIROS, Clarice. Chronic pain between silence and scream. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2015, vol.47, n.2, pp. 9-28. ISSN 0101-4838.

The article examines chronic pain, considering it as a manifestation of the death drive. If, on one hand, chronic pain is seen, for its voicelessness, as in the domain of the death drive, on the other hand we suggest that it causes a buzz which makes it possible to inscribe that which in the drive is excess without representation. Therefore, chronic pain is taken as a scream, an attempted enunciation that erupts when words will not do. Chronic pain as expression of the death drive is analyzed in its structuring and de-structuring aspects, respectively, as scream and silence, in an attempt to establish a limit as well as a sign of rupture of that limit.

Palavras-chave : chronic pain; death drive; scream; sign.
