COPPUS, Alinne Nogueira Silva. What function does the body have in anorexia and bulimia that takes place in the neurosis clinic?. Reverso [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.61, pp. 15-19. ISSN 0102-7395.
The psychoanalyst makes the body, which talks, an instrument in his/her practice. The body materializes the desire and the enjoyment of the subject who is found in the neurosis field. We choose the anorexia and bulimia as a resource which illustrates, as far as the psychoanalytic practice is concerned, the sticking points that having a body can represent to the subject. Having it in mind, we will point out the effects of the subject's fixation in a certain way of drive satisfaction - in this case, the oral kind - and also discuss the place this symptom has in the subject's phantasmagorical plot. These symptoms show us the dimension that the image can have in the subject's libidinal dynamics.
