NEUBERN, Maurício S.  e  GONCALVES, Hugo Nogueira. Iconicity as an alternative explanation of Milton Erickson's hypnosis. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2019, vol.25, n.1, pp. 62-72. ISSN 1809-6867.

This study's intent is to propose an alternative explanation for Milton Erickson's (1901-1980) hypnosis from the semiotics notion of iconicity, which consists on the capacity of signs to transmit qualities of its objects. In this study, the possible explanation unfolds from a clinical illustration of Erickson into a discussion addressing three main subjects: the heterogeneity of the hypnotic experience, the temporality, and the roles of the ego acing the unconscious influences. By pointing the different logical potentialities of signs, iconicity offers subsidies of great pertinence to comprehend the diversity of the living fabric which composes the hypnotic experience, the presentification of time experience, and the different forms of insertion and relation between the ego and the unconscious universe that precedes him. In that sense, the consequent contributions are of great pertinence, favoring a purely technical logic with its debates and surrounding collective appropriations to move away from Erickson's work, necessary conditions for its progress as proposal of thought a therapy.
