PALOMBO, María Angélica. Reasons accounting for the presentation of a sample. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp.144-163. ISSN 1852-7310.

In the frame of a conceptual research, the present work has the objective of exposing a particular sample related to the psychopathological value of emptiness state category. The sample is formed by the emptiness concept present in the work of Donald Winnicott, Otto Kernberg, André Green, Frances Tustin and David Maldavsky. These concepts are brought up to analyze how the authors first describe them. Then, how they approach the liaison between emptiness and psychological structure and, finally, the theorical approach to these matters, used by them. The object of the research is to find a precise and demonstrable way to establish similitudes and differences in the authors's theories.

Keywords : Conceptual research; Emptiness state; False-self; Autistic barriers; Devitalization.
