COSTA, André Oliveira  and  ENDO, Paulo César. Body, transmission and civilizing process: Sigmund Freud and Norbert Elias. Trivium [online]. 2014, vol.6, n.2, pp. 16-32. ISSN 2176-4891.

This paper aims to provide a dialogue between Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis and Norbert Elias's sociology. The common point is the hypothesis of drive loss as an operator that articulates the relationship between subject and culture. For Elias, the civilizing process transmits to individual social norms and rules in the form of self-regulation and self-control of objects and bodily functions. For Freud, the body operates the relationship between subject and culture. The drive gives to subject the conditions of collectivization.

Keywords : body; transmission; civilizing process; drive.
