BIANCO, Anna Carolina Lo. The construction of the real scene in Freud's The Wolf Man. Estilos clin. [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.12, pp. 146-155. ISSN 1415-7128.

The present work follows Freud's presentation of the primal scene reported by his famous patient, known as The Wolf Man, during his treatment. Highlights the author's care in being very exact about the data that surrounded the presentation of the scene, in order to garantee its materiality. In the same way, he counts on the patient's conviction in finding in the reported scene those signitiers that represent him. It then argues that upon such material one can observe Freud, step by step, paradoxically, constructing the scene. This reference to what he called material reality is considered the most distinguished trait of Freudian theorethical construction.

Keywords : Material reality; real scene; construction in analysis; the psychoanalytic real.
