JACOB, Claudia Alves  and  COHEN, Ruth Helena Pinto. O Sujeito contemporâneo: um recorte psicanalítico. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.2, pp. 537-554. ISSN 1518-6148.

This production is an attempt to contextualize the importance of the culture and the father in the constitution of the subject. For this purpose, we utilized as our basis the 1913 Freudian text, Totem and Tabu, in addition to other contemporary authors' contributions. We desire to present a clipping of the father's reflection on the contemporary subject, articulating his image with the XXI century polemics. It can be understood that the patterns of the beginning of the last century justify the youth rebelliousness, however the XXI century brings a new world vision, a discourse change. Nowadays, there isn't any time for mourning elaborations, since the cultural demands require immediate responses. The Other, who guided the path until the beginning of the last century, is no longer consistent. Lacan said that the ancient master was subverted, changing places with the contemporary master, which at the same time that promisses the completeness if the subject consumes his products, incites isolation and suffering, transforming human relations into less significant ones, that is, contradicts the inherent man's absence, promising the total happiness that is impossible to achieve. With the previous words in mind, we can ask ourselves which will the consequences of this extinct demands be, and we can find at Freud some conduction.
