"[[Name-of-the-Father]] ([[Fr]]. ''[[Nom-du-Père]]'')
 
 
==Jacques Lacan==
 
[[Lacan]] introduced the concept of the [[Name-of-the-Father]] into [[psychoanalytic theory]].
 
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]].
