AMPARO, Deise Matos do; MAGALHAES, Ana Cláudia Reis de  e  CHATELARD, Daniela Scheinkman. The body: identifications and image. Rev.Mal-Estar Subj [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3-4, pp. 499-520. ISSN 1518-6148.

From the critical review of the concept of the body in psychoanalysis and considering that this is a structural element, we tried to point out its possible links with the existential and psychic constitution of the subject. From the readings of Freud, Anzieu and Lacan, two interconnected lines of discussion were developed: the body united with the self, therefore, with the problematic of narcissism, and the relationship between the body and the primary identifications. In a second moment, followed the contributions of Schilder, Dolto and Pankow we discuss more specific issues that contribute to the debate on body image, referring to concepts such as unconscious image of the body and the body as a spatial structure. With the theoretical approach developed, we observe how the reflected image, formed from the other, as in the metaphor of the mirror, structures itself in the context of primary identifications, and is essential to the formation and constitution of the self and for the constitution of the psychic. Therefore, in order for the subject to arise and to exist as a subject of desire starting from this image, becoming a speaking subject, the subject of the unconscious, is fundamental the simultaneous intersection between, in one side, the mirror image and the word, as a mediator law, on the other hand. Thus, there would be an articulation of the body with the space and the language.
