MELLO, Carlos de Brito e. Error and truth: the tragic word in the psychoanalytic treatment. Reverso [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.69, pp. 45-51. ISSN 0102-7395.

Our intention in this paper is to outline a reflection on the dimension of the word in the psychoanalytic treatment, in its relation to the truth. Therefore, we recover the reading that Jacques Lacan makes an episode of the Odyssey of Homer, and the discussions held by St. Augustine in De Magistro. Finally, using the Greek theater, we find the statute that concerns us most strongly emphasize on the word: a tragedy.

Keywords : Word; Truth; Tragedy.
