DARRIBA, Vinicius Anciães. Inference of a paradigm concerning the way Freud operates with given dualities in his work. Psyche (Sao Paulo) [online]. 2004, vol.8, n.14, pp.61-76. ISSN 1415-1138.

This article investigates the way in which Freud operates with the dualities primary/secondary, primitive/civilized, and infantile/adult. Our aim is to demonstrate that, in the three cases, the meaning commonly associated with the relationship between the components of such dualities is questioned by the author and that a common paradigm can be inferred from that operation. The article also aims at verifying that the questioning of such dualities by Freud responds to what is at stake in the analysis experience according to him.

Keywords : Dualitie; Freud; Paradigm; Primary/secondary; Primitive/civilized; Infantile/adult.
