SANTOS, Natália De Toni Guimarães dos  and  ZORNIG, Silvia Maria Abu-Jamra. The object that lets itself erased: the function of the negative in the psychic constitution. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2015, vol.47, n.2, pp. 29-44. ISSN 0101-4838.

This paper proposes to think the function of the primary object in the psychic constitution, from the work of André Green. Distancing himself from the post-Freudian Anglo-Saxon model, which gives the object relations and the mother-infant dyad a prime place in the foundation of the psychic apparatus, Green invests in the power of creating a new contemporary theoretical and clinical model to undertake an fruitful seam between the relational perspective and the pulsionality, starting from the notion of thirdness as the founding mother of the psyche. The father falls, always been, the mother-child relationship, as a figure of absence, to occupy a place in mind and desire of the mother, setting up a primary triangulation. The maternal role, thus to behave itself the mark of the father as processuality, operates not only in the record of presence, but also as a structuring negativity, essential for the mother to become an object that lets herself get erased.

Keywords : thirdness; primal scene; work of the negative; psychic constitution.
