VIEIRA, Marcus André  e  FERREIRA, Luisa Beatriz Pacheco. Lacan and the God-infinite of Pascal: considerations about Pascal's wager and the beginning of a psychoanalysis treatment.. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.2, pp. 218-229. ISSN 1809-5267.

The article aims to analyze the use of a certain point in the work of Blaise Pascal, according to Jacques Lacan's, specifically about the wager on a God-infinite. Lacan complements the study of the Pascal's wager referring to the concept of the religious grace as the inaugural moment of opening to the infinite. From these considerations, the supported hypothesis is that Pascal's wager approaches the course necessary to the beginning of the psychoanalysis treatment. Pascal's wager puts infinite at stake. With the help of the philosopher Alain Badiou, we will try to demonstrate that Lacan shares the same idea when he considers that there is no opening to the unconscious - correlative to the beginning of an analysis - without some dimension of infinity.

Palavras-chave : Lacan; Pascal's wager; Christian grace; Alain Badiou; Beginning of psychoanalysis treatment.
