NICOLAU, Roseane Freitas. Psychosomatics and the writing of the real. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2008, vol.8, n.4, pp. 959-990. ISSN 1518-6148.

Taking as a starting point an investigation about psychosomatics and a revision about the theme, we intend in this article to revisit the texts of Freud and Lacan together with other analysts. The main intention here is to circumscribe the conceptual functioning of the theories about psychosomatics inspired by freudian and lacanian models, articulating them with Lacan's latest elaborations about the subject, presented at The Geneva Lecture (1975). There he points out that psychosomatic phenomenon is about body-writing, a writing that is not from the order of the sign, but from signature, which sends us to the dimension of enigma. According to Lacan, the traces are true hieroglyphs that we don't know how to read. That means written traces conceived as "not-to-read" because it's an undecipherable writing. Our goal is to formalize a theoretical knowledge that can be able to conduct the clinical practice, this one that produces questions about how to make a writing of the "jouissance" presented in psychosomatic reaction. We believe that psychoanalysis, marking the difference between neurotic symptom and psychosomatic phenomenon, opens up the possibility to sustain the direction of the cure by thinking the clinics not only as a work of signifying or work of letter, but also as an intervention that cuts out and detaches, making possible the dropping of what Lacan named "pieces of real". That's the idea that we intend to articulate with the writing of the Real in order to make possible for "jouissance" to be dislocated to the field of word and in the direction of the cure.
