GUIRADO, Marlene. A possible analysis of the psychoanalysis's discourse. Estilos clin. [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 392-403. ISSN 1415-7128.

The discussion deals with a concrete situation of a negative evaluation by a scientific Foundation, on a research project about an institutional analysis of the discourse of Freudian's Wolf Man, one of the most famous psychoanalytic studies. The argument to the refusal was that the methodology of the project didn't fit to psychoanalysis theory. The arguments against this criticism are supported by a concept of discourse as act, institution, so to affirm that being surprised by the discourse is the fundamental analysis condition, or even its inevitable frontier. It makes possible going on thinking and researching, although that kind of evaluation procedure has harmful immediate effects on our intellectual production.

Keywords : analysis of discourse; psychoanalysis; power; knowledge.
