FRANCA NETO, Oswaldo. The truth and the woman. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 562-572. ISSN 1677-1168.

The key concept of the whole theory of Alain Badiou is that of the "generic procedure", which he identifies as the way in which a truth of a certain world presents itself on it. He approaches the concept of truth to the terms of generic and indiscernible besides choosing as symbol for the generic term the female symbol (?). This article intends to unfold such concept, primarily aiming to explore this identification proposed by Badiou between the woman and the truth of a world. If, for Badiou, trueness and emptiness have in common the subtraction to knowledge, it does not mean that they identify with one another. Such distinction between trueness and emptiness can help us better discern between hysteria and feminineness by focusing not on the women’s eventual negativity character, but what is presented as subversive in her, by demonstrating an assertion besides the predicative snares of any society.

Keywords : Truth; Woman; Femininity; Generic; Indiscernible.
