OLIVEIRA, Flavia Lana Garcia de  and  SANTOS, Tania Coelho dos. The logic of the phantasm in the passage from modernity to contemporaneity. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.3, pp. 932-952. ISSN 1808-4281.

The contemporary clinic confronts us with subjects subject to massive impositions of jouissance. Drive fixations often appear free from the phantasmatic occultation in the unconscious. A kind of bond prevails with the Other that goes back to the more archaic forms of relation of the self to the object. Faced with this scenario, we ask what the status of the phantasm would be today. Our guiding principle will be the hypothesis of a debasement of the symbolic efficacy of paternal authority in containing drive's egoism, which manifests itself in the radicalization of the calls to unlimited jouissance. The phantasmatic grammar is a symbolic-imaginary screen that allows for interpreting the libidinal position of each one when faced the real of the desire of the Other. The disavowal of the paternal function as an agent of castration produces a voracious subject, whose weakness of self results in psychotic alterations of character.

Keywords : phantasm; contemporary clinic; body; drive.
