ANACLETO, Julia Maria Borges. Uniqueness in epistemic construction: knowledge and desire in infant formulations. Estilos clin. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp. 71-83. ISSN 1415-7128.

In order to contribute to the debate of the possibilities for epistemic novelties to emerge - extending and deeping Lajonquière's thesis in De Piaget a Freud (1992) - we here explore the elements of the Lacanian conceptual pathway in its return to Freud aiming at re-situating the issue of the subject in front of its structural determination. We thus link together the thinking enrolment in the field of word and language and the formulation of the symbolic as a significant structure guided by a paradoxal logic, that of the dialectics between demand and desire. We here present how the notion of significant of the absence in the Other leads to the theory of the object a, finding in the impossibility of completeness the key to the structural causality.

Keywords : knowledge construction; infant's theories; difference; subject of desire; affectivity.
