XAVIER, Cesar Rey. The history of unconscious or the unconscience of history?. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.1, pp. 54-63. ISSN 1809-6867.

The concept of unconscious represents a phenomenon whose history hasn’t been discussed at all within academic spaces meant for this. Its history is still not well known and, specifically at Brazilian undergraduate curriculums, all points that the most important part of the research traditions that created it is not transmitted, be it for the intrinsic politics and ideologies of the undergraduate programs, be it for mere ignorance. The present work proposes to tell a part of this story, being based, specially, upon the works of the Swiss-Canadian psychiatrist Henri F. Ellenberger. For such enterprise, it will be necessary to line out some contours and contexts that circumscribe the relation of this concept with the German Romanticism, pointing out the impact that different concepts of Man and Nature that came from there left as legacy for the current times. Obviously, without having the ambition of mirroring all of this topic’s coverage in this article, at least it seeks to present a frame of the innumerous windings that this concept carries from past centuries, enclosing a brief chronology of names, times and thought.

Palavras-chave : Unconscious; History of psychology; Romanticism.
