Summary: This paper tries to give a historical view to what has been considered as perverse through different cultures and societies until the conceptualizations outlined by the psychoanalytic theory from Sigmund Freud to Jacques Lacan. This historical route starts in Ancient Greece and goes through the Middle Age, the sexology of the late nineteenth century, the previous psychoanalytical authors and the classification made by the DSM-IV and the ICD-10. This paper tries to show the relativity of the different conceptualizations of the perverse and the perversion and how the psychoanalytical theory has defined these phenomena.
