LOPES, Rosa Guedes. A psicanálise é o que reintroduz o nome-do-pai na consideração científica. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp.95-111. ISSN 1809-4414. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-14982011000100007.
Psychoanalysis is what reintroduces the Name-of-the-Father to scientific consideration. Lacan defines the psychoanalysis' task as the one to reintroduce the Name-of-the-Father to scientific consideration. This text aims at demonstrating what this means. In such attempt, it examines the concept of the Name-of-the-Father as a lacanian formalization of the Oedipus myth with which Freud defined psychic reality. Following this, it takes the ways of progress as well as the gaps this concept suffered in Lacan's first teaching.
Keywords : psychoanalysis; subject of science; Name-of-the-Father; psychic reality; Oedipus.
