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=== [[~~category~~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> ==See Also==* [[Algebra]]* [[List of algebraic symbols]]* [[Matheme]]* [[Formalization]]* [[Science]] ==References==<references/> ==See Also==[[Category:Psychoanalysis]][[Category:Jacques ~~lacan~~Lacan]][[Category:Science]][[Category:Concepts]][[Category:Science]][[Category:Terms]]
