MENDES, Rita de Cássia Cardoso da Silva; PARAVIDINI, João Luiz Leitão  and  NEVES, Anamaria Silva. The Clinic and the "Psychoanalytic Past" in Contemporary Times. Analytica [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.18, pp. 1-20. ISSN 2316-5197.

This essay aims to analyze the creative status of the psychoanalytic clinic and, to this end, rescues the critical dimension of the "psychoanalytic past" from the 20th century as the operator of the discussion. Through this monitoring, we realized that what is foreshadowed with persistent constancy is the risk of death of psychoanalysis itself, since its theory and practice have put at stake the new forms of contemporary subjectivity. As researchers of psychoanalytic knowledge and psychoanalysis, we have witnessed how psychoanalysis has faced the challenges posed by contemporaneity. Thus, the origin of the "psychoanalytic past" was recovered, its reflexes in contemporaneity and the contingencies faced by the current clinic supported by the tripod: social bond, desire and subjectivity. Finally, some reflective questions were established towards Lacan's questioning "What does an analyst do?", reverberating the considerations about the potential and "heuristic vocation of Psychoanalysis" that favor its reinvention.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Clinic; Contemporaneity.
