COELHO DOS SANTOS, Tania. About the Lacanian oriented psychoanalysis clinic: from the sexual dead-lock to the invention of the symptom-partner. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.1, pp.9-26. ISSN 1516-1498.

After we have pursued the Lacanian view of sexuality, we shall devellop our thesis on the intimate bond between sexuation and invention. The last theory of reality sums itself up in the formula that directs the last teaching of Lacan: "there is no sexual relation". The symptom is the only exception to the rule that states: the real is symbol-less. The male and female subjective positions are symptoms, supplements in the unexisting sexual relation. By resuming the main landmarks of Freudian thought on sexuality, in light of Lacan's last teaching, we shall demonstrate the articulation between the act of invention and the genesis of symptom-partner.

Keywords : Sexuation; invention; Name of the father; object a; real.
