MAZZUCA, Roberto; MAZZUCA, Santiago  and  SURMANI, Florencia. Contrast of the anaclitic object-choice concept in Freud and Lacan. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp.111-123. ISSN 1851-1686.

This work articulates the Freudian concept of Anaclitic Object-Choice with the Lacanian concept of Anaclitic Relation by examining their relations, similarities and differences. First, the Freudian concept is delimited and the complexity of its relations to other concepts of the Freudian theory is highlighted, pointing out the difficulties in understanding post-Freudian developments stemming from such complexity. Secondly, the Lacanian concept is delimited, or rather both concepts of anaclitic relation developed by Lacan in different moments of his work are described. The first concept, presented in Seminar 4, Lacan builds a concept over the eroticism and intersubjectivity axis, excluding the id's drives components (the core of the Freudian concept). The other concept is presented within Seminar 16, where the anaclitic relation is considered an essential characteristic of the perverse structure in opposition to the Narcissistic relationship, which is typical of neurosis.

Keywords : Anaclitic object-choise; Narcissism object-choise; Anaclitic relation; Perversion.
