NUNES, Isadora Elaine Sales  e  CARVALHO, Isalena Santos. To Recognize is to Love?: Some Psychoanalytic Reflections on the Recognition of Paternity in Brazil. Analytica [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.19, pp. 1-20. ISSN 2316-5197.

Data presented by the 2011 School Census showed that 5,494,267 children and adolescents live without their father's surname, leading to the right to promote campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of parental registration, such as the "Recognize is Love!" from Maranhão (Brazil). Although the Law understands that parental recognition occurs from the inscription of the father's surname on the son, recognizing a child involves unconscious questions about the sonship, and it is not possible to think it in a prescriptive way, since it will be experienced differently for each subject. This article seeks to discuss the recognition of paternity from psychoanalysis, in articulation with the concept of paternal function in Lacan. According to Lacan, the paternal function is beyond searching whether the father was present or not in the person's life, but in thinking of the father as a function that embodies a place of interdiction from the mother to the child, establishing a Law.
