==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 "'''[[prohibition|legislative''' and '''prohibitive role]]'''" function of the "'''[[symbolic]] [[father]]'''" as the one who lays down the [[incesttaboo]] on [[tabooincest]] 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>
=====Legislative and Prohibitive Function=====The rexpression is at once a semi-humorous [[religion|religious]] allusion and a play on the near-homonyms '''''non''''' and '''''nom''''': the '''[[name-of-the-father]]''' ('''''le nom du père''''') is also the [[father]]'s "'''no'''" ('''''le "non" du père''''') to the [[child]]'s [[incest]]uous '''[[desire]]''' for its '''[[mother]]'''. (the '''[[law|legislative and prohibitive function]]''' of the '''[[symbolic]] [[father]]''')
The rexpression is at once a semi-humorous ===Fundamental Signifier===In [[religion|religiousLacan]] allusion (''In nomine patris'') and a play on the nears 1955-homonyms '''''non''''' and '''''nom''''': the '''6 [[name-of-the-fatherseminar]]''' ('''''le nom du père''''') is also the , [[fatherThe Psychoses]]'s "'''no'''" ('''''le "non" du père''''') to , the expression becomes capitalized and hyphenated and takes on a more precise [[childmeaning]]'s ; the [[incestName-of-the-Father]]uous is described as the '''[[desirefundamental signifier]]''' for its which permits '''[[mothersignification]]'''to proceed normally.
The [[Name-of-the-Father]] both confers [[identity]] on [[human]] [[subject]]s (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]].
===Foreclosure===
The [[foreclosure]] of this [[fundamental signifier]], or its [[expulsion]] from the [[subject]]'s [[symbolic|symbolic universe]], is said by [[Lacan]] to be the [[mechanism]] that triggers '''[[psychosis]]'''.
From the beginning [[Lacan]] plays on the homophony of '''''le nom du père''''' ('''the [[Name-of-the-Father|name of the father]]''') and '''''le 'non' du père''''' ('''the "[[law|no]]" of the [[father]]'''), to emphasize the '''[[law|legislative and prohibitive function]]''' of the '''[[symbolic]] [[father]]'''. =====Master Signifier=====A few years later, in the [[seminar]] on the [[psychoses]], the expression becomes capitalized and hyphenated and takes on a more precise meaning; the [[Name-of-the-Father]] is now the '''[[master signifier]]''' which permits '''[[signification]]''' to proceed normally. This '''[[master signifier]]''' both confers [[identification|identity]] on the [[subject]] (it names him, positions him within the '''[[symbolic order]]''') and [[signification|signifies]] the '''[[Oedipus complex|Oedipal]] [[law|prohibition]]''', the ''''no'''' of the [[incest]] [[taboo]]. If this [[signifier]] is '''[[foreclosed]]''' (not included in the '''[[symbolic order]]'''), the result is '''[[psychosis]]'''. =====Paternal Metaphor=====
[[Image:NOTF.gif|thumb|404px|right|The paternal metaphor]]
In [[another ]] work on [[psychosis]], [[Lacan]] represents 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]]).
