SAVIO, Karina. The “official” knowledge of the unconscious in Argentina. A discursive study of the Revista de Psicoanálisis (1946-1955). Logos [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.2, pp.326-338. ISSN 0716-7520.

This article studies the issues of the Revista de Psicoanálisis published between 1946 and 1955 in Argentina. In particular, it analyzes the articles written by the Argentine psychoanalysts that appear there and the notes and information that are included in the last pages of the magazine. It proposes, on the one hand, to trace what psychoanalysis wass in those years, thinking this knowledge as a discursive object, and, on the other, to inquire about the way in which the psychoanalytic discursive community of the APA is constructed. This journey has shown, on the one hand, that psychoanalysis was understood, at that time, as a scientific theory and a practice contiguous to medical practice, limited to the individual treatment. On the other, it has identified that the magazine, in addition to being a privileged means of communication for the institution, contributes to the consolidation of the psychoanalytic discursive community.

Keywords : discursive object; discursive community; discourse analysis; history of psychoanalysis; enunciation.
