NEVES, Tiago Iwasawa  and  SANTOS, Andreza Silva dos. The direction of the cure in the Lacanian clinic of psychosis. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.2, pp. 257-267. ISSN 1983-3482.

The objective of this article is to problematize the concept of "cure" from Lacanian psychoanalytical references, taking the clinic of psychoses as a questioning about the consistence and possibilities of this concept. It is a work that is justified by the importance of understanding the cure in the direction of a treatment because it presents itself as responsible for substantiating the different approach means in the clinical practice. We start with the discussion proposed by Georges Canguilhem in "Normal and pathological" and a brief definition of the concepts of health and disease, trying to demonstrate how the author proposes an open cure perspective to the possibilities of the subject and not as objective goal of medical knowledge and scientific. Then we present the psychoanalytic theorizing about psychosis from the works of Freud and Lacan, seeking to articulate a clinical direction of cure compatible to the proposed by Canguilhem. We conclude with a defense of the psychoanalysis ethics as opposed to the normative clinical developments of today, seeking to specify the psychoanalytic treatment as a clinic which takes as its sole criterion the subject.

Keywords : psychosis; psychoanalysis; cure.
