SILVA, Alessandra Tavares  e  BIANCO, Anna Carolina Lo. Freud's moses: knowledge and transmission in psychoanalysis. Estilos clin. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.26, pp. 216-235. ISSN 1415-7128.

The article examines Freud's text Moses and Monotheism to circumscribe the relation between the presence of the Great Man and the long lasting tradition of Jewish religion. Refers to the emphasis put by Freud in the murder of Moses, since it shows a point where the transmission chain is interrupted. The subject must come in this place of interruption as responsible to give the chain its continuity. The Freudian construction is then approached from the point of view of the psychoanalytical operation when the patient supposes the analyst has full knowledge of the circumstances. It concludes by saying that only when faced with the lack of total knowledge on the part of the analyst which occupies the place of an object that causes the patient desire will the latter recognize a place of his/her own in a chain of transmission.

Palavras-chave : tradition; transmission; knowledge; subject supposed to know; religion.
