AMORIM, Patrícia Mafra de  y  BELO, Fábio Roberto Rodrigues. Monogamy in Karen Horney: considerations on the psychoanalytic constructions of femininity. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 246-268. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study aims to investigate contributions from the psychoanalyst Karen Horney to the understanding of love relationships. We reckon the author seems to be a good representative of what Laplanche points out as present suppressions in psychoanalytic theory. We investigated the flow of Karen Horney’s psychology of love, based on Laplanche’s methodology for the analysis of psychoanalytic texts, willing to identify their merits and demerits in the construction of a psychoanalytic theory that is committed to the political consequences of its elaborations. Monogamy, hegemonic institution that tends to be interpreted as natural in our Western society, seems the ideal field for the discussion proposed by the author on the place assigned to women. Therefore, we shall trace a vector ray about the theme, observing the different forms through which it repeats itself in the author’s work. Arguing how romantic relationships are made up, it is necessary to approach the issues of identification and gender, which pervade such relationships.

Palabras clave : Karen Horney; Monogamy; Surppression; Gender; Sexual.
