LEWKOWICZ, Sergio. Notes on psychoanalysis in Southern Brazil. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.2, pp. 153-158. ISSN 0486-641X.

The author presents his perception of the history of psychoanalysis in Rio Grande do Sul from the 1970s to the present date, the period in which he carried out his medical, psychiatric and psychoanalytic training. He also describes a brief survey he conducted with Brazilian colleagues, concluding that perhaps in Brazil we could speak of a post-colonial, "mestizo" psychoanalysis; one which is seeking its identity in the contemporary world, along with that of our country. It is a process that implies de-idealizing what is foreign and recovering a value of our own.

Keywords : history of psychoanalysis; Brazilian psychoanalysis; idealization of the foreigner; postcolonial psychoanalysis.
