CABRAL, Alexandre Marques. The crisis of the subject to overcome clinical confession. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.3, pp. 987-1006. ISSN 1808-4281.

The present article aims firstly at highlighting the way  (how) Ana Maria Calvo de Feijoo uses the notion of Existence  in her book  The existence beyond the subject. Such notion  belongs to the phenomenological thought of Martin Heidegger, as an axis around which a new proposal for the clinical practice in psychology rotates. Secondly, the article focus on showing why her proposal deconstructs the leading confessional character of the traditional clinical practices in psychology. In order to reach its target, the text not only rebuilds the conceptual operators found in Feijoo´s work, which make the goal possible to be reached, but it also makes explicits some principles present in her thought . To do so, it must be explained how the Heideggerian notion of existence and the Husserl concept of intentionality deconstruct the tradicional concept of truth. Such concept designs every confessional practice in traditional clinic. This is the practice which has always marked psychology with morality..
