LOFFREDO, Ana Maria. A freudian text surprisingly forgotten: "on aphasia: a critical study". Estilos clin. [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.1, pp. 166-184. ISSN 1415-7128.

This work examines the influence of John Stuart Mill's nominalist associationism on Freudian thinking, especially in the 1891 monograph "On Aphasia: a critical study", a key work which has not occupied its rightful space in the literature. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of this specific monograph for the study of the foundation of the Freudian conception of language and the repercussions of the conceptions presented there on the subsequent metapsychology constructs, particularly on the notion of "presentation" (Vorstellung), which can be considered a milestone where crucial questions revolve.

Keywords : Freud; aphasia; John Stuart Mill; presentation; metapsychology.
