SAIGH, Yeda Alcide. Self-analysis 150 years after Freud. Psyche (Sao Paulo) [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.20, pp. 117-128. ISSN 1415-1138.

The author collects some ideas about auto-analysis, since Freud, pioneer also of the auto-analysis. Freud spoke of a “continued auto-analysis”. The quarrel is open, between those who think auto-analysis is possible, and others who think it is impossible. Being activated, the function of the auto-analysis can one say that the observer task, delegated to the psychoanalyst in psychoanalytical process, is reassumed by analyzed subjects. So, we conclude theoretically that the auto-analysis is possible. Finally, “it can be said that the personal analysis finishes when subject no more demands the Other what the Other does not have to give”. This seems to be the situation of the analyzed patient, whose analysis can be directed for the ending and, therefore, for the self-analysis.

Palavras-chave : Self-analysis; Ending of analysis; After-ending of analysis; Ego function; Analytic function.
