VICTOR, Eugênia Assis  y  BURGARELLI, Cristóvão Giovani. Subject and object in the psychoanalytic clinic: the function of the rest. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2022, vol.22, n.1, pp.1-11. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article approaches the function of the rest in psychoanalysis from the dialectical link between theory and clinic. We work on the notion that a part of the experience with the body is not inscribed, that there is a residue, an impossible to be said. This rest, elided and excluded, can materialize in the form of an abject body, an expression of a socially non-legitimate way of being. A marginal body that causes horror outside the ideal of normality, happiness, or healthy life. Such formulations, then, arise from clinical listening and return to the clinic as questions and concerns about psychoanalytic work with the rest. We aim, in this article, to discuss some of the effects of Lacan's formulation (1962-63/2005) regarding object a, in the making of psychoanalysis. First, we will resort to Freud's (1915/2004) elaboration on the drive, in articulation with what Lacan formulated about the rest as a cause of desire. In a second moment, we will work with the specificity and subversion proper to the psychoanalytic clinic, based on listening to the subject of desire. For this, we will resort to this other implication between Lacan and Freud: the question of the Freudian clinic and that of the subject in Lacan, passing through its elaboration on the letter. We argue that the analysis foresees ways of writing the rest, on the threshold of the letter, calling for the invention of know-how with the real. We propose, therefore, that there is no clinic without considering the reverse, the filthy, the marginal, and the horror.

Palabras clave : psychoanalysis; rest; subject; clinic.
