The following paper has been elaborated following a diachronic trajectory of psychoanalytic theory, which allows establishing pauses, outlining the most important shifts produced in Freudian and Lacanian elaborations, respectively. Starting from Freud‘s productions, as main fulcrum, the Lacanian approach of the symptom will be introduced to link to the proposal of the sinthome proposed by Lacan. Freud will explain symptoms through the theory of trauma; those will find themselves hinged on mnemic traces, which will make the analysis of the patient‘s produced associations a crucial activity, to comprehend the etiology of the symptoms and the development of the cure.
