CHERER, Evandro de Quadros  and  CHATELARD, Daniela Scheinkman. From the impossible thing to the desire of the forbidden mother. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.1, pp. 61-71. ISSN 1516-3687.

This theoretical study in psychoanalysis aims at developing a conceptual approach of the mother as an interdicted/desired object to the idea of das Ding. We conducted the research based on some texts, especially the Freudian work on this subject, but also taking into consideration studies by Lacan. The perspective of the lack of object considers the interdiction of incest as a reference to the inaccessibility of the first mythical object of satisfaction (das Ding). Even if the mother is one thing (die Sache), in the interdiction, she has value as das Ding. Thus, the interdiction of incest can be a reference to the impossibility of accessing the Thing. This tension reveals the relationship between law and desire, showing the importance of the interdiction of incest.

Keywords : Oedipus Complex; desire; interdiction of incest; mother; psychoanalysis.
