SANTOS, Tania Coelho dos. The psychoanalyst’s policy: the knowledge of psychoanalysis between science and religion. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.1, pp. 63-82. ISSN 1677-1168.

The bond between the advent of science and modernity with the birth of psychoanalysis brings about the need to find conceptual tools to consider the contemporary world psychoanalytically as well. The gap between the modern and the contemporary is often reduced to the present time, to high modernity or to hyper-modernity. The unification of sciences reduces all knowledge to a single market, thus bringing about a new discomfort to civilization: the homogenization of knowledge. Knowledge cannot work as common measure, since it is not an interchangeable asset. Not everyone, therefore, will enjoy the profit that it engenders. The symptom is the way each one suffers in the relation with joy as a profit. There lies a new form of fraud that seems just perfect to circumscribe the concept of contemporaneity.

Palavras-chave : Modernity; Contemporaneity; Knowledge; Truth.
