NAFFAH NETO, Alfredo. The basic function of the mother (and of the analyst) according to Bion and Winnicott, focusing on the concepts of rêverie and holding. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.3, pp. 119-131. ISSN 0486-641X.

This essay analyses the concepts of rêverie and holding in their original theories, in order to discriminate them. Itproceeds to discuss the clinic of schizophrenics such as performed by Bion and Winnicott, showing that those key-concepts define the analytic function in both authors, imposing different ways of practicingpsychoanalysis.

Keywords : rêverie; holding; Bion; Winnicott; analysis of schizophrenics.
