Symbolic Function
==Jacques Lacan==
===Symbolic FunctionFather===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|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>
