Keywords: Defense | Subjectivity | Repression | Disavowal | Foreclosure

When crossing from the natural state to the cultural state, the human breed, in response to the absence captured in the body of the woman, disposes of three means to negate castration. They are three defensive means used by the subject to avoid being totally reduced to the condition of a simple object of desire of the Other. In dealing with repression, we have the psychic inscription “there is no penis” in the body of the woman substituted by “I do not know”, which drives the subject to glide through culture in search of objects directed to a type of knowledge imprinted by paternal anteriority. Concerning disavowal, we simultaneously have the negation and the affirmation of the existence of a penis in the body of a woman by means of the two coexisting psychical chains that do not contradict each other and hold the fetish as the paradigm. Finally, in foreclosure, the absence in the body of a woman is not captured, placing the subject in the position of being the phallus of the mother.
