DURANGO, María Isabel. About the ego ideal of women in politics. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp.59-84. ISSN 1852-7310.

In the Study of Libidinal Drives and Defense Mechanisms manifested through Discourse of Politically Active Women in Ecuador, one of the specific objectives proposed was to analyze the ego ideal in the form and content manifested in discourses of women politicians. The method used in the investigation is the David Liberman Algorithm (DLA) and the stages for analysis are two: words and narrations. The ego ideal expresses and includes different conceptions of time, surroundings and groups that show how people, and women in this case, conceive reality in a specific context, as Freud had already anticipated in his 35th Conference. Every cosmovision involves a project; more specifically an ego ideal as well as an ambiance and time configuration that are manifested through discourse.

Keywords : Ideal; David Liberman Algorithm; Drives; Defenses; Politics; Woman.
