"[[Name-of-the-Father]] ([[Fr]]. ''[[Nom-du-Père]]'')
When the expression "[[Name-of-the-Father|the name of the father]]" first appeared in Lacan’s work, in the early 1950s, it is without capital letters and refers generally to the "[[prohibition|prohibitive role]]" of the "[[symbolic]] [[father]]" as the one who lays down the [[incest]] [[taboo]] in the [[Oedipus complex]].
<blockquote>"It is in the 'name of the father' that we must recognize the support of the symbolic function which, from the dawn of history, has identified his person with the figure of the law."<ref>{{E}} p.67</ref></blockquote>
