SOUZA, Mauricio Rodrigues de. Psychoanalysis in front of the other (or the "uncanny" couch of Procustus). Psyche (Sao Paulo) [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.23. ISSN 1415-1138.

This work proposes a reflection on otherness in psychoanalysis, in its clinical and methapsychological implications . Therefore, focusing Freud (1919) "The Uncanny" (Das Unheimliche), our intention is to discuss an innovative approach of the other: instead of avoiding or projecting the other elsewhere, we qualify him as inherent to everything that is human, that is, as being manly a divided subject. As we shall see in a second moment, that’s precisely the characteristic that allows us to articulate this stranger of ourselves which is the Unconscious with the strangeness of the analyst’s function, guided by an ethics whose peculiarity resides in letting itself be taken not by principles imposed from the outside - despite theory reserve -, but by the desire of someone that dares to ask.

Palabras clave : Psychoanalysis; Metapsychology; Otherness; Uncanny; Esthetics.
