TAVARES, Leandro Anselmo Todesqui  and  HASHIMOTO, Francisco. Theoretical research in psychoanalysis: conditions and possibilities. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.2, pp.166-178. ISSN 1983-8220.

This article is part of the methodological approach concerning theoretical investigation aspects, developed from the analysis of research in Psychoanalysis. Due to its peculiarities, research in Psychoanalysis raises issues and questions which advance far beyond the positivist conceptions which underline the dominant paradigm of our present day production of knowledge. Considering Psychoanalysis as the effect of the psychoanalitic act in itself, mainly when considering its theoretical scientific approach which must be part of a specific method, the following question is raised: what are the real possibilities of research in Psychoanalysis, specifically theoretical research in Psychoanalysis? The article aims at articulating relevant issues concerning the field of Psychoanalysis and their relevant development for research in this field. To sum up, the article highlights issues concerning the role of the researcher as a necessary and decisive condition for any theoretical research in the field of Psychoanalysis.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Psychoanalytic research; Implications.
