This research is about the notion of psychoanalytic praxis, understood as a way of knowing. Applied towards a treatment, clinical decisions and ethics relating to it. How to recognize the knowledge in action in the praxis of psychoanalysis from its incidence on the analyst\'s side? Our hypothesis is that this would allow us to think clearly how to define criteria for a psychoanalysts praxis, even considering the incorporation of knowledge and experience in their own formation. Our goal is to define the attributes and characteristics of this knowledge as regards to the psychoanalyst, that is not restricted to the domain of theoretical concepts and deontological rules, but above all, it would derive from his personal analysis. We will examine the Lacanian proposals on the relationship between knowledge and truth, the connection between knowing the psychoanalyst and the object a, as well as the concept of the Subject Supposed to know - understanding that in such notions, the idea of praxis expressed and the type of corresponding knowledge aim to verify to what extent, the knowledge of the psychoanalyst has a unique character as it comes from personal analysis, a characteristic trait, which aids the analyst to operate a treatment. It would also answer the universality criteria, by its articulation of the concepts of theoretical teaching and by its aspiration of transmissibility (AU)
