KELLES, Natália Fernandes  and  LIMA, Nádia Laguárdia de. Adolescents in the cyberspace: a psychoanalytical reflection. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.2, pp. 202-233. ISSN 0101-4838.

This research investigates the relationships of adolescents with knowledge in the context of digital technologies from the notion of inconsistency of the Other. To carry out this discussion, the relation between knowledge, transmission, and transference was scrutinized from fragments of conversation with adolescents in a public school. The hypothesis sustained here is that, faced with the unraveling of the inconsistency of the Other in current times, the search for knowledge begins to be made in the internet. Nonetheless, that which the adolescent obtains in the internet is not from the domain of knowledge, but rather from that of information. Not only internet does not favor the elaboration of a singular knowledge, but it also reveals and reinforces the inconsistency of the Other.

Keywords : adolescence; knowledge; psychoanalysis; conversation; internet.
