Abstract

ESCOBAR MARIA, Carmen Elisa. TRAGEDY, COMEDY AND HUMOR IN THE PSYCHOANALYSIS. Eidos [online]. 2008, n.8, pp.136-158. ISSN 1692-8857.

Starting from the issue stated by S. Critchley that psychoanalysis is the extension, deepening and complication of what he calls tragic-heroic paradigm, the article aims to specify that tragedy is what makes psychoanalytic theory and experience inseparable from laughter and the phenomena linked to it. This point has been insufficiently studied. Following these arguments, the paper presents some comments about that kind of exhortation that says "back to the things themselves" so close to the freudian method, to the "use" of what is tragic-heroic in Lacan, to the concept of das Ding "Thing" and to the contribution of Freud to humour. On the other hand and completely related to this, the paper highlights some lacanian issues that consider the "body" as core in the experience of comic. Finally, the paper examines the opposition Bergson -Freud-Lacan about laughter, mechanic and language.

Keywords : Tragedy; comedy; psychoanalysis; Freud; Lacan; Critchley; Bergson.
