FONSECA, Thales. Critique of clinical reason in Lacan and its political inflection. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.2, pp. 155-184. ISSN 0101-4838.

The present essay seeks, in a retroactive movement, to demonstrate that there is in a critique of clinical rationality, performed by Jacques Lacan within Freudianism, a rudiment of critique of ideology at its cynical foundation. In this sense, Lacan would have advanced the idea that late modernity would be permeated by a cynical rationality, epoch diagnosis that influenced contemporary political philosophers such as Zizek and Safatle. Thus, we seek to explain this relationship, highlighting other points that lead the psychoanalytic clinic to coincide with social criticism. By way of illustration, we also carried out a brief analysis of the current Brazilian political situation as the maximum expression of the cynical ideology. Finally, we start from the perspective that the critical method and the possibility of expansion beyond the clinical stricto sensu would be characteristics inherent in psychoanalytic praxis since Freud.

Palavras-chave : critical of clinical reason; critique of ideology; social criticismo; psychoanalysis; policy.
