==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]]'''.
===Symbolic Function===When <blockquote>"It is in the expression "'[[Name-of-the-Father|the name of the father]]" first appeared in [[Lacan]]’s work, in ' that we must recognize the support of the early 1950s'''symbolic function''' which, it is without capital letters and refers generally to from the "[[prohibition|prohibitive role]]" dawn of the "[[symbolichistory]] , has [[fatheridentified]]" as the one who lays down his person with '''the [[incestfigure]] [[taboo]] in of the [[Oedipus complex]]law'''."<ref>{{E}} p.67</ref></blockquote>
<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>  ===The "No" of the FatherLegislative and Prohibitive Function===From the beginning 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 '''[[Namename-of-the-Father|name of the father]]) and ''le 'non(''''' le nom du père'' (''') is also the "[[law|nofather]]'s " of '''no'''" ('''''le "non" du père''''') to the [[fatherchild]]'s [[incest]]uous '''[[desire]]''' for its '''[[mother]]), to emphasize '''. (the '''[[law|legislative and prohibitive function]] ''' of the '''[[symbolic]] [[father]].''')
===Fundamental Signifier===
A few years later, in the In [[Lacan]]'s 1955-6 [[seminar]] on the , [[psychosesThe Psychoses]], the expression becomes capitalized and hyphenated and takes on a more precise [[meaning]]; the [[Name-of-the-Father]] is now described as the '''[[fundamental signifier]] ''' which permits '''[[signification]] ''' to proceed normally.
This The [[fundamental signifierName-of-the-Father]] both confers [[identification|identity]] on the [[human]] [[subject]] s (it names him, positions him within by situating [[them]] in a lineage and the [[symbolic ]] [[order]]) , and [[signification|signifies]] the '''[[Oedipus complex|Oedipal]] [[law|prohibition]]''', the ''''no'''' of the [[incest]] [[taboo]].
If ===Foreclosure===The [[foreclosure]] of this [[fundamental signifier]] is , or its [[foreclosedexpulsion]] (not included in from the [[subject]]'s [[symbolic order|symbolic universe]]), is said by [[Lacan]] to be the result is [[mechanism]] that triggers '''[[psychosis]]'''.
===Paternal Metaphor===
[[Image:NOTF.gif|thumb|404px|right|The paternal metaphor]]In [[another ]] work on [[psychosis]], [[Lacan]] represents of the '''[[Oedipus complex]] ''' as a '''[[metaphor]] ''' ('''[[paternal metaphor]]'''), in which one [[signifier]] (the [[Name-of-the-Father]]) [[metaphor|substitutes ]] another (the [[desire]] of the [[mother]]).
