CASTRO, Júlio Eduardo de. The psychoanalyst's desire and the symptom as source of sufferancee. J. psicanal. [online]. 2014, vol.47, n.86, pp. 153-166. ISSN 0103-5835.

This article approaches the ethics of psychoanalysis that is transmitted through intensive experience, also called the psychoanalyst's analysis. In order to do that, it falls back upon Freud's work and Lacan's guideline mainly in what is related to the rule of the symptoms in psychoanalytic theory and also the so called "psychoanalyst's ethical operators". From Lacan's teachings, we extract these clinical operators of psychoanalytic ethics: the psychoanalyst's desire; the psychoanalyst's discourse; the psychoanalyst's acting; the psychoanalyst's knowledge. The psychoanalyst's desire achieves here the function of ethical coordinate through which we mainly guide ourselves in the approach of the suffering originating from the symptom, of the symptom as indispensable condition to psychoanalytical treatment. Concerning the approach to the symptom in the field of psychoanalysis' ethics, we take consequences with regard to the acts of the psychoanalyst when operating this same ethics.

Keywords : intensive psychoanalysis; symptom; psychoanalysis ethic; psychoanalyst's desire.
