NAVIA, Ricardo. Remarks on the epistemological statute of Psychoanalysis and of psychoanalytic research. Nat. hum. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.2, pp. 134-143. ISSN 1517-2430.

This work was motivated by a certain debate in face of the use of the expression "research in psychoanalysis" to designate - almost exclusively - the extra-clinical empirical studies on the process or results of psychoanalytic treatments. I believe that, to the extent that these studies are carried out from outside the clinical-analytical framework and based on categories that are also often non-analytical, they should be called "research on psychoanalysis". It seems clear that, as in any autonomous discipline, the denomination "research in psychoanalysis" should be reserved for the investigations that are carried out from the theory, the framing, the methodology and the proper categories of the discipline; that is, for clinical or theoretical investigations typically psychoanalytic. I intend here to claim the thickness, the specificity and the epistemological consistency of this investigation.

Palavras-chave : epistemology of psychoanalysis; clinical psychoanalytic research; empirical research.
