RAVANELLO, Tiago; BEIVIDAS, Waldir  and  FARIAS, Flávia Milanez de. Freudian bases for a discursive approach of affection. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.3, pp. 705-725. ISSN 1677-1168.

In this paper, we mean to intercept more directly the rapport between affect and language in the bases of the Freudian field. We aim at outlining characteristics inherent to their consideration and their mutual involvement, as well as listing points bearing the matter of discoursivization of affection in Freud’s work. However, our main objective is not to determine a Freudian approach of affection, but to highlight bases that point out the relevance of taking over the concept of affection from within a rigorous debate about the language, presenting shortly some obstacles that could preclude a dialogue between psychoanalysis and the language theories. With that in mind, we shall outline a short path so as to determine two possible ways to approach the concept of affection, a "quantitative" and a "metaphorical one", based on the study of Freud’s works and his critics.

Keywords : Affect; Psychoanalysis; Language.
