The complex relationship between the history of psychoanalysis and the very identity of psychoanalysis is examined. Among others, the following topics are reviewed: Can psychoanalysis be considered a limited and unitary body of knowledge; Its possible definition, especially vis-à-vis other disciplines; Does a specific psychoanalytic invention exist; The problem of dissident movements; Psychoanalysis as a science within other sciences, as a history within all possible histories of sciences; Psychoanalysis as a natural science and its relation with history as a discipline; Psychoanalysis as interpretation of history; Psychoanalysis as a great anti-ethics; The objects of psychoanalysis; The relationship between reality and memory of reality; The influence of psychoanalysis on history. (This paper already appeared in Psicoterapia e Scienze Umane, 1986, XX, 3: 75-79, and is reprinted in memory of the author, who died on February 2, 2008). [KEY WORDS: history and psychoanalysis, science and psychoanalysis, interpretation of history, relationship between psychoanalysis and other disciplines, identity of psychoanalysis]
