In this work we are dealing with some questions posed by certain authors who contrast classical analysis, based on the theory of drives, to the so-called relational analysis, which gives priority to the interpersonal relationship. Starting from these theoretical divergences, the question of analytic dialogue arises as a form of relationship between patient and analyst, with the corresponding question about the value of interpretation. Metapsychological considerations are made that imply the change of model, from free as-sociation and free floating attention, to a dialoguing relationship and the consequence that this implies for the understanding of the unconscious. To illustrate the above, a clinical vignette is presented.

Keywords: Dialogue, homogenous, heterogenous, free association, free floating attention
