RIBEIRO, CarolineVasconcelos. Heidegger’s Critique to Freud: Whem most Original Access to Reality Does not Require Representation. Winnicott e-prints [online]. 2006, vol.1, n.1, pp. 85-95. ISSN 1679-432X.

In his Zollikon Seminars, Heidegger points towards the need to create a science of the psyche that conceives man - his health and his illness - without reducing him to a representing mind, to a symptom-generating machine, to an object that can be causally explained. In launching that challenge, the Heideggerian philosophy defies the consolidated Freudian psychoanalysis denouncing it as being indebted to modern metaphysics, since its conception of man as a psychic apparatus controlled by impulses establishes the representation as the only form of access to reality, reifies human life reducing it to a field of physical-mathematical powers. Hence, Heidegger defends the possibility of a "science of man" that cannot be reduced to a reifying discourse. The present communication points out that Freudian psychoanalysis does not contemplate human existing in its non-reifying modes of dealing with reality and further shows that that possibility was found in Winnicott's theory of maturation.
