Summary.  According to the Freudian theory, the analytical relation is marked by the transfert, which can be understood in two ways: it can appear as the projection of formerly assimilated libidical pulsions by the patient towards the analyst; then it has its own function because it constructs the so-called transferal neurosis. According to the Adlerian theory, the analytical relation seems to be moved by the aggressive pulsion, which is autonomous if compared with the libidous; then the relation is not characterized by functional aspects, but by fictional ones. According to Freud the analytical relation develops under the category of eros, but according to Adler the therapeutic relation develops in a context bound to epos, which characterizes those fictions of relation inside the analytical couple. We report some observations about a clinical case in which the epic and aggressive aspect of relational fictions, which are moved by the analytical relation, evidently appears.
