Psychoanalysis during the Brazilian military dictatorship

March 2019

The dossier Psy cultures: psychoanalysis, subjectivity and politics (HCSM vol.24  supl.1,  2017) features a paper about Psychoanalysis during the Brazilian military dictatorship (1964-1985).

The discourse of “neutrality”: attitudes of psychoanalysts during the military dictatorship, written by the psychoanalyst Carmen  Lucia Valladares de Oliveira (PUC – SP) examines the position of Brazilian psychoanalytical societies and psychoanalysts in the 1970s.

It shows that the period was a time of  large investment in private clinics and a resulting “marginalization” of the social doctrine. Psychoanalysis over this period also was dominated by the discourse of neutrality and the primacy of internal reality to the detriment of external reality. Therefore,  there was a complete separation between psychoanalysis and politics.
