GUERRA, Andréa Máris Campos  and  ANDRADE, Hudson Vieira de. About the theory of the nomination in J. Lacan: from the act to the invention. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2019, vol.51, n.2, pp. 103-120. ISSN 0101-4838.

We develop the thesis that there are two propositions of the psychoanalyst J. Lacan on the theory of nomination. We have located it from the analysis of two paradigms extracted from the Freudian myths of "Totem and Taboo" and of "Moses and Monotheism". One first theory based on the premise that the act founds the condition of the name, from the murder of the primeval father as an element of regulation and reference. And another theory that, in the face of the impossibility of assimilating, it is necessary to invent a name, from which a subject or a people is oriented. The consequences derived from the two paradigms relate to the subject and to the social bond, conforming different political and subjective modes of discursive rationality and subjective operability.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; nomination; myth; proper name; social bond.
