FERNANDES, Sergio Augusto Franco. Lacan’s position on chapter IV of the book on the Witz, by Freud. Nat. hum. [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.2, pp. 74-94. ISSN 1517-2430.

Lacan will say, without much argument, that Freud had even repudiate the nonsense word, a term that has been presented by Freud as the most widely characterized the Witz, especially Gedankenwitz. We will check how Lacan will deal with this issue. What will be left out in the Lacanian approach, according to our suspicions, it is the function of pleasure as Freud maintains, namely in terms of "economic". Lacan, in turn, does not fail to emphasize the importance of the issue of pleasure in the Witz, he had this pleasure to be authentic, the pleasure of using their own significant. In other words, Lacan makes a Witz one significant. What is intended to clarify, in fact, is the difference in perspectives on the role of pleasure in the Witz.

Keywords : Freud; Lacan; Witz; nonsense; other; pleasure.
