SERRALHA, Conceição Aparecida. Potential space: from origin to evolution. Estilos clin. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp. 157-172. ISSN 1415-7128.

It is a study on the concept and theory of potential space by D. W. Winnicott. An exhaustive reading of the author's work and her scholars was carried out. There is no consensus among them on the moment when potential space constitutes in the line of maturation of the individual and on the expressions used to name it. For Winnicott, potential space is the locus of a process that happens in the individual, which begins in an intermediate area with its phenomena and transitional objects, and evolves to playing, shared playing and cultural experiences.

Keywords : potential space; Winnicott; maturation theory; playing; area of cultural experiences.
