MELLO, Renata  and  HERZOG, Regina. Cleaved psychisms: lack of meaning and insistence in existing. Cad. psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.27, pp. 65-81. ISSN 1413-6295.

This paper discusses the notion of psychic cleavage as a favoured defense in face of instinctual excess in the context of the conceptual upheaval of the 1920's. In line with this objective we suggest: first, to investigate the counterpart of the object in organizing the cleaved psychism; and second, to deal with the subjective impasses of cleavage considering the flaws in the imbrication of the object with the drive.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; cleavage; drive; object relations.
