LAUREANO, Pedro Sobrino  and  CHAVES, Wilson Camilo. To elevate the Thing to the dignity of objects: Lacan politics between prohibition and the impossible. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.2, pp. 330-350. ISSN 0101-4838.

Our goal is to trace the political implications of the passage, in Lacan's work, of a conception of law guided by the dialectic between interdiction and transgression to another, which starts to be explored by the psychoanalyst in the 60s, in which the Law loses its interdicting character and starts to be associated with the idea of the impossible. It is a movement in which Lacan reviews some of the fundamental paradigms that had guided his theory and clinical in the 50s, and starts to focus on the analysis of concepts such as the objet petite-a, jouissance and drive. Our aim is to defend the idea that the return to the prohibitive dimension of Law, both in the its clinical and political implications, it's insufficient to understand, at least from a Lacanian point of view, the strategy of cure in treatment and social criticism, in cultural analysis.

Keywords : Lacan; may 68; interdiction; transgression; impossible.
