[Autom. eng. transl.] The woman cannot be one: she doesn't make mass, nor universal, but she is irretrievable singularity to the group. In today's family, the "post-oedipal", the "scientific" one, what is the resource of La donna? Lacan, decidedly in this "over-Freudian" being, introduces an early ruin - under the name of ravage - into that intriguing oedipal relationship that is consumed among women, between mother-daughter. Freud speaks of this link as something catastrophic and indecipherable; the dopofreud of the 1950s focuses on the domain of the maternal question; Lacan does not stop and returns to the feminine. Women, therefore, as non-whole, as something that escapes discourse, not all-mother in the structure, comes into play in the parental couple, working enigmatically and thus making themselves questionable for all the subjects of the family: for the father, the mother and for the child.
