FERREIRA, Patrícia do Prado. Collectivity and hysteria: psychoanalyses and social events. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.2, pp. 67-92. ISSN 2238-152X.

The proposal of this paper is to bring a contribution starting from the psychoanalytic idea of hysteria that goes of theoretical advance by Freud and by Lacan to think about collective organisations. For this purpose, we intend to dedicate our studies especially to elaborations by Freud (1921) about ‘identification to a symptom’ - that permit it a suppose ‘collective hysteria’ - and the succeeding theory of the discourses by Lacan (1969-1970) about the social ties’ framework, observing his provocation to the ‘revolucionaries’ of 1968 May, pointing them as being allocated to the ‘Discourse of the Hysteric’. Therefore, we intend to defend from the idea of hysteria in psychoanalyses, the existence at least two different ramifications originating from the same clinical type. Thus, we will try to contribute to a better comprehension of the possibilities and limitations of the social events and social groups, especially those that permeated the Brazilian political scene in recent times.

Palavras-chave : hysteria; collective hysteria; discourse of the hysteric; social events.
