COSTA, Carlos Alberto Ribeiro. Scientific objectification as "paradox in the relationship between speech and language". Mental [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.22, pp. 4-17. ISSN 1679-4427.

This article rescues elements of what Lacan called "paradoxes in the relationship between speech and language". Aiming at the contemporary debate, this work draws to itself a triple purpose. First, to identify how, in modern times, the formalization of language allows to identify the insubstantial and no essential effect that is the subject. In a second point, the work considers that the formalization inherent to the scientific and capitalist civilization project can segregate this subject by reducing language to the informational paradigm and by alienating this subject to the consumer function. Finally, the paper propose that speech, in its dimensions of performance, social, recognition and otherness, is one way to think of the psychoanalytical clinic as a form of resistance to these segregation processes.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; speech; clinical; segregation; language.
