no edit summary
The rexpression is at once a semi-humorous [[religion|religious]] allusion (''In nomine patris'') 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]]'''.
  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]]'''.
