PEREIRA, Mateus Abreu  y  SOUZA, Mauricio Rodrigues de. Narcissism and Melancholy in Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego: approximations. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.2, pp. 1-20. ISSN 1982-1247.

Taking into account both its metapsychological and social importance, this article traces an itinerary of the notions of narcissism and melancholy within the scope of Freud's "Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego". Therefore, through a reconstitution of the path that begins in "On Narcissism: an introduction" and "Mourning and Melancholia" until the reappearance of these concepts in the text about the psychology of the masses, it intends to shed some light on the processes of idealization, identification and introjection that, according to Freud, tile a continuous line between subject and society. In conclusive terms, the present work points out some possible connections between the splitting of the Ego, the melancholic servitude and the attempts to recover a narcissism upon the immersion in the contemporary masses.

Palabras clave : Narcissism; Melancholy; Masses.
