The subject, the object and the law : Jacques Lacan’s object a and « Le Graphe »

Abstract: In this paper, I would like to clarify two particular notions–illustrations–which Lacan used to present his own reading of Freud’s model, a representation in fact which amounts to a development of psychoanalytical theory along what I take to be very freudian lines : the object and the law.
