MONTENEGRO, Maria Aparecida de Paiva. Psychoanalysis as a theory of irrational acts. Temas psicol. [online]. 2001, vol.9, n.3, pp. 187-198. ISSN 1413-389X.

The dialogue between philosophy and psychoanalysis, traditionally characterized as mutually provocative, becomes, nevertheless, of particular interest when the latter is conceived as a theory of irrational acts. From such a perspective, while pointing out that the acts so far considered irrational address to entirely coherent contents, psychoanalysis magnifies the scope of rationality, contributing to the inquiry into this complex philosophical question. However, the use of two distinct patterns of rationality by means of psychoanalysis itseif - explanation and understanding - arouses philosophical criticisms on the part of the most different traditions. Such are the cases of George Politzer's and Sartre's critiques, representatives of continental philosophy, and the ones of Wittgenstein's and Donald Davidson's, exponents of Angio-Saxon philosophy

Palavras-chave : philosophy and psychoanalysis; psychoanalysis and irrational acts.
