TOTOLI, Flávia Costa  and  MARCOS, Cristina Moreira. Two paradigms of psychosis in the theory of Lacan. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp. 257-265. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article is about the concept of psychosis through the view of two paradigms: The Schreber paradigm, in Seminar 3 (1955-1956) and the text On a question preliminary (1958) - In which we have a truly triggered psychosis; and the Joyce paradigm, of Seminar 23 (1975-1976) - in which Lacan deduces a psychotic structure without the triggering. Is possible to say that there is a first clinic in the beginning of Lacan's study, based on the structures: neurosis, psychosis and perversion. The first Lacan formalized the unconscious based on the saussurian concept of sign and elaborated the concepts Name-of-the-Father and Paternal Metaphor, announcing his fundamental axiom: the unconscious structured as language. The second stage of Lacan's study is considered by Jacques-Alain Miller as a transition stage, cause it subverts the Name-of-the-Father by its pluralization and considers that the repression operation can no more be attributed to the paternal interdiction, but to the action of the language. Lacan in his conclusion of Seminar 10 (1962-1963), highlights the end of the Name-of-the-Father, and substitutes by its pluralization, the Names-of-the-Father. From the Joyce paradigm, we have another perspective of psychosis, approached through the sinthome. From this start, is possible to think in multiple solutions founded by the subject to deal with his psychosis. The lacanian knots theory, allow us to approach the singularity of the invented solutions of the subjects through the unique lashing that each one does, of the three components of the reality: the real, the symbolic and the imaginary.

Keywords : psychosis; schrebe; joyce; the knots theory; triggering; suppleance.
