Abstract

This paper is about female sexuation in Lacan´s teaching. There are going to be five remarques about it, in relation to different conceptualizations of jouissance. This paper proposes  differentiate three central notions: hysteria, female position, female jouissance.

Respect female´s sexual development, Jacques Lacan doesn’t follow the same ways that Sigmund Freud, he defines others possibilities. The sexuation tables, elaborated in Seminar 20 (1972-1973 [1985]), are the result of an conceptual effort that allows him to define the female jouissance in intself, different than phallic jouissance.
