ANDRADE, Cláudia Braga de. The language for ‘addition’ of the semantic dimension. Reverso [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.57, pp. 21-30. ISSN 0102-7395.

Language is a central issue in psychoanalysis and - as far as the Freudian project is concerned - it can be considered in two ways which are related to each other: as evidence of the therapeutic method, accomplished through speech, and in the formulation of the psychic apparatus. This article is about different perspectives and possibilities concerning the approach to language present in the Freudian discourse- which  grants special consideration to both representation and dynamic pulsation. Language interferes directly when it comes to making one’s way to a clinical treatment and also signalizes distinct positions concerning the metaphysical logic of representation. We have assumed that the acknowledgment of the power of language concerning affection does not necessarily mean that affect is a constituent part of language.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Language; Representation; Intensity.
