This article discusses four different positions of fictional truth derived from Sabina Berman's play, Feliz Nuevo Siglo Doktor Freud, on Dora's clinical case. The staging inherent to the hysteric structure reveals the fantasies of prostitution, of the seduction of the father, of the instauration of femininity and of the textual diversity of (counter) transference. The play takes clinical work to a dimension of critical debate in which Freud finds himself divided between the different formulations of his sexual theory and the breakthroughs brought about by the testimony of the singular experience. It reveals not only the background of social and historical conditions that frame the clinical exercise of the word and subjectivity, but also the conditions that determine complex relations between sexes and imaginary-ideological schemes that influence Freud's thinking.
