Pacheco e Silva’s discourse over psychoanalysis: São Paulo, 1926-1979
Any Psychology scholar would recognize the extent of existing tensions between Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry. At the same time, the historical perspective shows us interconnections and mutual influences in the theoretical, practical, institutional and political planes between these disciplines. In the case of São Paulo, Antônio Carlos Pacheco e Silva (1898-1988) influenced generations of psychiatrists graduated in Psychiatry schools that he directed between 1923–1968. His history has been studied from different perspectives, with a gap on his stance with regard to Psychoanalysis. This article aims to review this historical gap, being based on the analysis of the psychiatrist’s own papers about Psychoanalysis. We seek to contribute to the understanding of the history of the Psychology field in São Paulo.
