CASTRO, Júlio Eduardo de. The psychoanalyst’s position and the symptom as source of discomfort. Cogito [online]. 2011, vol.12, pp. 64-68. ISSN 1519-9479.

This article approaches the ethics of the psychoanalysis that is transmitted by intensive experience, also called the psychoanalyst’s analysis. In order to do that, it falls back upon Freud’s work and Lacan’s guideline mainly in what it comes to the rule of the symptoms in the psychoanalytic theory and also the so called ‘psychoanalyst’s ethical operators’. From Lacan’s teachings, we extract these clinical operators of the psychoanalytic ethics: the psychoanalyst’s desire; the psychoanalyst’s discourse; the psychoanalyst’s acting; the psychoanalyst’s knowledge. These operators fulfill the role of being the theoretical-conceptual guideline to guide us at the approach of the discomfort from the symptom that inexorably makes one to look for the psychoanalysis as a treatment. Concerning the symptom at the psychoanalysis ethics, we get consequences towards the acting of the psychoanalyst when operating this same ethics.

Keywords : intensive psychoanalysis; symptom; psychoanalysis ethic.
