The [[translation ]] of a proposition or [[body ]] of propositions into a more more [[language]], such as that of [[mathematics]] or symbolic [[logic]], usually in [[order ]] to clarify or explicate the information [[content]], as in the [[matheme]] of [[Lacan]].
===Formalization of Psychoanalysis===
[[Three ]] main reasons lie behind this attempt at [[formalization]].
:1. [[Formalization]] is necessary for [[psychoanalysis]] to acquire [[scientific]] status.
: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]]
:[[Lacan]] used quasi-mathematical formulae in an attempt to set [[psychoanalysis]] on a more [[scientific]] footing.
:2. [[Formalization]] can provide a core of [[psychoanalytic theory]] which can be transmitted integrally even to those who have never experienced [[psychoanalytic treatment]].
:The [[matheme|formulae]] thus become an essential aspect of the [[training]] of [[psychoanalysis]] which take their [[place ]] alongside [[training|training analysis]] as a medium for the transmission of [[psychoanalytic]] [[knowledge]].
: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, manipulated and read in various different ways.<ref>{{E}} p.313</ref>
