MORE, Geneviève. Sinthome, sublimation, sexuation: symptom continuation. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.spe, pp. 57-65. ISSN 1807-0310. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822009000400010.
Following Lacan's reading of Joyce, I have developed a Lacanian thesis fundamental to the study of intergenerational transmission which uses a concept different from identification: symptom continuation. Moreover, the emphasis Lacan placed on the sinthome does not prevent sublimation from being considered as one of the other possible continuations of Joyce's initial symptom.
Keywords : symptom; sublimation; transmission; Joyce; parenthood.
