BRUM, Stephanie. Obsessive neurosis: the construction of psychoneurosis. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2021, vol.53, n.1, pp. 30-57. ISSN 0101-4838.

Obsessive neurosis is one of the two defense psychoneuroses described by Freud and on which the construction and development of his model of psychic apparatus was fundamentally based. In this article, we propose to promote a study on obsessional neurosis, its dynamics and defense mechanisms. To this end, we will develop a literature review on the subject taking Castel's (2011) angular consideration as a starting point, according to which it was obsessive neurosis and not hysteria that was responsible for the emergence of the bases of psychoanalysis and the construction of the idea of a psychic apparatus. In order to circumscribe the idea proposed by Castel, we will dedicate ourselves primarily to a journey on the construction of obsessional neurosis based on Freudian propositions. We will follow the timeline seeking to shed light on the development of a form of organization specific to this neurosis and its dynamics of desire on the agenda. Finally, we will present Abraham's considerations from which we will develop the idea of a libidinal regression movement in question in these cases and not a logic of fixation to a specific stage of libidinal development.

Keywords : Obsessive neurosis; wish; regression; mechanisms of defense; libido.
