The concept of consciousness in Freud's Project for a psychology and its metapsychological consequences

Trans/Form/Ação 28 (1):85-108 (2005)

Freud's Project for a psychology presents a wide reflection on the concept of consciousness, which, in spite of certains difficulties, casts some light on how Freud then conceived the relations between consciousness, representation and language. The aim of this paper is to circumscribe the meaning of the concept of consciousness found in the Project for a psychology and to discuss some of its consequences for the way consciousness is approached later in Freudian metapsychology.No Projeto de uma psicologia, de 1895, está exposta uma ampla reflexão sobre o conceito de consciência, a qual, embora apresente algumas dificuldades, permite esclarecer como a relação entre a consciência, a representação e a linguagem era pensada por Freud nesse momento. O objetivo deste artigo é circunscrever o sentido da noção de consciência presente no Projeto de uma psicologia e discutir algumas de suas implicações para o modo como a consciência será abordada nos desenvolvimentos posteriores da metapsicologia freudiana
