ANDRADE JUNIOR, Moisés de. Make yours the heritage of thy father: the name-of-the-father in psychoanalysis. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.2, pp. 189-203. ISSN 0103-5665. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-56652011000200012.
This article studies some key moments in the development of the lacanian concept Name-of-the-Father, starting with Freud’s works about the repression, demonstrating the importance of Freud’s thinking for the development of the concept. Three periods of his trajectory are investigated: the Name-of-the-Father as the incest interdiction; the Name-of-the-Father pluralized as establisher of the unconscious structured as a language; finally, his role in the borromean knots theory. To do so, we will investigate the transfinite mathematics, whose logic pervades some of the lacanians elaborations. The orientation of this line of thought will be the possibility of unconscious itself, taken as the repressed material, or as the articulation between significants.
