CANAVEZ, Fernanda  and  HERZOG, Regina. Symptom's singularity: for a psychoanalytic criticism of the idea of origin. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.1, pp. 109-124. ISSN 0103-5665.

The purpose of this article is to show how the notion of origin promotes inflection in the conception of symptoms by Freud, which has, actually, brought changes in psychoanalytic technique. In this way, the symptom begins to hold a fundamental place in the psychic dynamic, revealing all of its originality, which speaks in favor of the subject and, for this reason, should be positively valued by the psychoanalyst.

Keywords : origin; modernity; symptom; cure; singularity.
