GUERRA, Andréa Máris Campos. Jouissance in the borromean topology: a new paradigm?. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.1, pp.39-59. ISSN 0101-4838.

Based on a review of the six paradigms of jouissance in Jacques Lacan, we propose a seventh from the Borromean topology. In it, the surplus or disjunctive logic between jouissance and language is replaced by the ex-sistence logic, which founds an outside that is not a non-inside. In this paradigm, jouissance is a supplement that is left by the operation of tying the knot of three rings (real, imaginary and symbolic) as a treatment of the Other of the Other that does not exist. Lacan proposes a seam between imaginary and unconscious knowledge, tying at the same time the symbolic and the real, producing therefore the sinthome. Its result is the real effect of binding the psychic reality in the form of four rings with the distribution of three forms of jouissance.

Keywords : jouissance; borromean topology; Other; sinthome.
