SILVA, Angela Cristina da  and  SANTOS, Kátia Alexsandra dos. The feminine and the lacanian perspective of overcoming the phallic logic. Reverso [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.74, pp. 39-46. ISSN 0102-7395.

The relation between psychoanalysis and the theories of gender was never too easy. Even not intending to enter these epistemologically opposite fields, this article aims to discuss the matter of the feminine from the psychoanalytic perspective, particularly with regard to the lacanian postulate of overcoming the phallic logic. For this, we bring a text from Eliane Brum as an element of discussion, in which she speaks about the horror of expectators towards the framework called The origin of the world, by Gustave Coubert. We believe this horror refers to the specificity of the feminine as masked and as bearer of the possibility to be put beyond the phallic logic.

Keywords : Feminine; Psychoanalysis; Phallic logic.
