==Jacques Lacan==
===Symbolic Father===
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 '''legislative''' and '''prohibitive''' function of the "'''[[symbolic]] [[father]]'''" as the one who lays down the [[taboo]] on [[incest]] in the '''[[Oedipus complex]]'''.
[[Lacan]] introduced the concept of <blockquote>"It is in 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]]. <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>  --
From the beginning ===Legislative and Prohibitive Function===The rexpression is at once a semi-humorous [[Lacanreligion|religious]] plays allusion and a play on the homophony of near-homonyms '''''non''''' and '''''le nom du père'' (''': the '''[[name -of -the -father) and ]]''' ('''le 'non' le nom du père'' (''') is also the [[father]]'s "'''no' of the father''" ('''''le "non" du père'''''), to emphasize the [[child]]'s [[incest]]uous '''[[desire]]''' for its '''[[mother]]'''. (the '''[[law|legislative and prohibitive function ]]''' of the '''[[symbolic]] [[father]].''')
===Fundamental Signifier===In [[Lacan]]'s 1955-6 [[seminar]], [[The Psychoses]], the expression becomes capitalized and hyphenated and takes on a more precise [[meaning]]; the [[Name-of-the-Father]] is described as the '''[[fundamental signifier]]''' which permits '''[[signification]]''' to proceed normally.
A few years later, in The [[Name-of-the -Father]] both confers [[seminaridentity]] on [[human]] [[subject]]s (by situating [[them]] in a lineage and the [[psychosessymbolic]][[order]]), the expression becomes capitalized and hyphenated and takes on a more precise meaning; [[signification|signifies]] the '''[[Name-of-the-FatherOedipus complex|Oedipal]] [[law|prohibition]] is now ''', the ''''no'''' of the [[fundamental signifierincest]] which permits [[significationtaboo]] to proceed normally.
This ===Foreclosure===The [[foreclosure]] of this [[fundamental signifier]] both confers identity on , or its [[expulsion]] from the [[subject]] (it names him's [[symbolic|symbolic universe]], positions him within the is said by [[symbolic orderLacan]]) and signifies to be the [[Oedipalmechanism]] that triggers '''[[prohibitionpsychosis]], the 'no' of the incest taboo'.
If this ===Paternal Metaphor===[[signifierImage:NOTF.gif|thumb|404px|right|The paternal metaphor]]In [[another]] work on [[psychosis]], [[Lacan]] represents the '''[[Oedipus complex]] is ''' as a '''[[foreclosedmetaphor]] ''' (not included '''[[paternal metaphor]]'''), in which one [[signifier]] (the [[symbolic orderName-of-the-Father]]), [[metaphor|substitutes]] another (the [[desire]] of the result is [[psychosismother]]).
