ALVES, Márcia Barcellos  and  SOUSA, Edson Luiz André de. Testimonial: metaphors of remembering. Psyche (Sao Paulo) [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.23, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1415-1138.

The present work reflects about the thematic of the narrative dialogue and the testimonial situation evidenced in the book "This is a man" of Primo Levi, relating it with the construction of the clinic case in psychoanalysis. For this aim, the study refers to Levi"s testimonial and to constituent aspects of the narrative process through authors as Sigmund Freud, Walter Benjamin, Jeanne Marie Gagnebin, Márcio Seligmann-Silva, among others. It questions the impasses of memory on the dialectics of the factual and fictional realities and interrogates the concept of no-representation. Then, it suggests for clinical issues the testimonial and reflects about the implications of the narrative and telling stories.

Keywords : Testimonial; Psychoanalysis; Story; Representation; Memory.
