Espero mostrar aqui como a noção de cultura que se transmutou em “simbólico” para os psicanalistas lacanianos é muito diferente da noção de cultura corrente nos estudos culturais contemporâneos, de tal modo que esses dois esforços são frequentemente vistos como inapelavelmente opostos. Também pretendo argumentar que qualquer pretensão a estabelecer as regras que “regulam o desejo” em forma de leis inalteráveis e eternas tem um uso limitado para uma teoria que procura compreender as condições sob as quais a transformação social de gênero é possível.


I hope to show here how the notion of culture that becomes transmuted into the “symbolic” for Lacanian psychoanalysis is very different from the notion of culture that remains current within the contemporary field of cultural studies, such that the two entrerprises are oftem understood as hopelessly opposed. I also plan to argue that any claim to establish the rules thar “regulate desire” in an inalterable and eternal realm of law has limited use for a theory that seeks to understand the conditions under which the social transformation of gender is possible.
