[[Algebra]] ([[Fr]]. ''[[algèbre]]'') is a branch of [[mathematics]] (or which reduces the solution of problems to manipulations of [[logicsymbolic]]) concerned with the properties and relationships of abstract entities represented in symbolic formexpressions.
==Formalization==
In 1955, [[Lacan]] begins to use [[algebraic]] [[symbol]]s -- in an attempt to [[formalize]] [[psychoanalysis]].
==Jacques Lacan==[[Three]] main reasons lie behind this attempt at [[formalization]].
:1. [[Jacques LacanFormalization]] begins to use is necessary for [[algebraic]psychoanalysis] [[symbol]]s in 1955 (in an attempt to acquire [[formalise]] [[psychoanalysisscientific]])status.
===Formalization of Psychoanalysis===:Just as [[Claude Lévi-Strauss]] uses quasi-[[mathematical]] [[formulae]] in an attempt to set [[anthropology]] on a more [[scientific]] footing, [[Lacan]] attempts to do the same for [[psychoanalysis]]
Three main reasons lie behind this :[[Lacan]] used quasi-mathematical formulae in an attempt at to set [[psychoanalysis]] on a more [[formalizationscientific]]footing.
:12. [[Formalization is necessary for ]] can provide a core of [[psychoanalysispsychoanalytic theory]] which can be transmitted integrally even to acquire those who have never experienced [[scientificpsychoanalytic treatment]] status.
:Just as The [[Claude Lévi-Straussmatheme|formulae]] uses quasi-mathematical formulae in thus become an attempt to set essential aspect of the [[training]] of [anthropology[psychoanalysis]] on a more which take their [[scientificplace]] footing, alongside [[Lacantraining|training analysis]] attempts to do as a medium for the same for transmission of [[psychoanalytic]] [[psychoanalysisknowledge]].
:3. [[Formalization]] of [[psychoanalytic theory]] in [[terms]] of [[algebraic]] [[symbols]] is a means of preventing [[knowledge|intuitive understanding]], which [[Lacan]] regards as an [[imaginary]] [[lure]] which hinders access to the [[symbolic]]. :Rather than [[being]] [[understood]] in an intuitive way, the [[algebraic]] [[symbols]] are to be used quasi, manipulated and read in various different ways.<ref>{{E}} p.313</ref> ==List==[[Image:Lacan-mathematical formulae algebra.jpg|thumb|right|[[List of algebraic symbols]]]]The [[algebraic]] [[symbol]]s used by [[Lacan]], which appear principally in an attempt the [[matheme]]s, [[schema l]] and the [[graph of desire]], are [[List of Algebraic Symbols|listed here]], together with their most common [[meaning]]. ''[[List of algebraic symbols|Click here]] to view the [[List of Algebraic Symbols]]'' ==Development==It is important to [[remember]] that the [[symbol]]s do not always refer to the same [[concept]] throughout [[Lacan]]'s [[work]], but are used in different ways as his work develops. Therefore some caution should be exercised when referring to the [[list]] of [[equivalences]] above. ==Details==The typographic details and diacritics are extremely important in [[Lacan]]ian [[algebra]].The [[difference]] between upper- and lower-[[case]] [[symbol]]s, the difference between italicised and non-italicised [[symbol]]s, the use of the apostrophe, the minus [[sign]], and subscripts; all these details play their part in the [[algebraic]] [[system]]. For example the upper-case letters usually refer to the [[symbolic]] [[order]], whereas the lower-case letters usually refer to set the [[psychoanalysisimaginary]] on a more . The use of the [[scientificbar]] footingis also important.
