Familiar discourses comprise within themselves the social myths, feelings and unconscious fantasies connected with them, which remain secret and powerful by their historlcity and which are inscribed in the raw material: the neroly-born, who must be molded through the process of identification, through libidinal investments and through a registration of the discourse of impulses (triebe) and their representatives. Through a psychoanalytical approach of psycosomatic symptoms, we have studied the early beginnings of the constitution of the subject of the unconscious, by resorting to the structuring of narcissism and of the unconscious, which is built up as a language in linking significants by contiguity or similarity, by displacements and condensations, i.e., building itself up in a chain as metonimies and metaphors organized in a discourse. Narcisism would be that which structures the corporal ego, the body being the biological support erotogenized on basis of the maternal discourse whose wish anticipates a gestalt of the image, organizing and giving contour to the infant’s sphinctered and anarchical body. In the narcissistic structure are articulated the impulses (triebe), the erotogenic zones, the wishes, and the primary repression, fixing the representations which will from the corporeal ego. The symptom emerging in the acturality of the body would appear as the outcome of a disorganization in the articulation of the significants of the maternal wish, which provide for the internal laws of the discourse, thus hindering the symbolic inscription of the meaningfulness of the limits and frontiers of the infant’s erotogenized body, whose instinctual representative (Triebreprãsentanz) expresses itself as a demand for signification.
