GORDO SANCHEZ, Jaime. Thought and limit in psychoanalysis. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.123, pp.559-570. ISSN 2340-2733.

The aim of this paper is to develop some lines of reflection that put together around the question of thinking in psychoanalysis. The central idea is that thinking in psychoanalysis is thinking about limit and that such thinking is there where the own thought finds its limit. To show this we'll begin with two dimensions of the Freudian elaboration (the limit in the thinking of the associative capacity and the limit on the thinking of the scene) to continue with the analysis of the importance of the concept of limit in thought and the theoretical conceptualization in psychoanalysis. It is this approach of thinking towards a limit involving psychoanalysis, the reason of its radicalism and its irreducible difficulty of formalization and transmission.

Keywords : Thought; Limit; Psychoanalysis; Free association; Scene.
