ABSTRACT
Albeit the Seminar on “The Purloined Letter” is one of the clearest of the writings of Lacan, in a special part of the text a dense logical-mathematical formalism makes the rationale difficult to understand for the majority of the readers. In addition, some not explicitly assumed hypothesis lead the reader to consider as general some conclusions that are not absolute at all. This paper proposes a detailed analysis of these specific parts of the text, bringing light, not only over the subsumed hypothesis, but also over Lacan’s theory properly. Some results from the Theory of Complexity, specially the self-organization phenomena, are used to update Lacan ideas about the genesis of the symbolic structure of the unconscious.
