VORCARO, Ângela Maria Rezende; MOREIRA, Giselle Gonçalves Mattos; GUIMARAES, Marcela Reda  and  SOUZA, Maxsander Almeida de. The early registers of lack of objetc and its symbolic implications to the constitution of the subject. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.1, pp. 131-142. ISSN 1983-8220.

In the present article one has intended to discuss the notion of object in psychoanalysis, as is considered by Lacan in his Seminar IV (1956-7), all being dedicated to the problem of the object. We were particularly interested by the consideration of that which Lacan called lack of object as the fundamental feature of the problem. From the theorization of the French psychoanalyst on two of the three types of lack of object, that is, frustration and privation (the third form - castration - is not the subject of this article), one has outlined the path and dynamics in which these so called registers of the lack in the primary organization of the infans' symbolic chain fall back on. The registers of the lack pointed out in this article will be important to Lacan to articulate the concept of fantasy and object. Although not yet formalized his theory of fantasy is already given the logical place of the object as being covered by the lack.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Lacan; Foundations.
