JAVERA, João Pedro  e  SAFRA, Gilberto. Winnicott's Apophatic Approach toward the Self and its Clinical Implications. Analytica [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.19, pp.1-22. ISSN 2316-5197.

The concept of self notably appears in the works of Donald Winnicott (1896-1971) as a key element in his broad concept of man and his respect for its unfathomable and paradoxical character defines the very ethical stance and clinical approach that mark him out as distinctive in the tradition. This paper aims to offer a construal of how the English psychoanalyst treats the human self apophatically once he asserts that it can only be known from an indirect position, i.e., by playing in the "potential space"; focusing on the reverberations this understanding of the concept of man brings to the use of interpretation in the clinical encounter and to epistemology in the psychoanalytic field.

Palavras-chave : Self; Psychoanalysis; Epistemology; Winnicott; Apophatism.
