Le choix du prénom chez le trans

Abstract : The choice of the first name in the trans, is a thesis that makes approximations to the trans question from the psychoanalytic clinic proposed by Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan.To the main question that gives rise to this investigation - how is it that a person can change their name (and sex / gender)? -, one more is added, which aims to ask whether it is justified or not -and why- continue making a structural differentiation based on the criteria of psychoanalysis.In the tension between these two questions lies the author's effort to formulate a reflection that refers to psychoanalytic theory but that takes root in what interrogates the theory, and even discusses it based on the complexity of clinical encounters with transgender people. The whole of the research is based on three working groups: psychiatry and queer theory of the United States; psychiatry, sexology and feminism of Mexico, and psychoanalysis of France.Specifically in relation to the teaching of Lacan, considering that the specificity of the work appeals to the question of the choice of the first name, the period to which it is circumscribed goes from 1961 -Year in which his seminar begins, The identification- to 1965 -that dedicated to the crucial problems for psychoanalysis-, a period in which Lacan works with greater emphasis, the question of the proper name. This necessary delimitation does not exclude, however, when it was necessary, the presence of links to other moments of its teaching, taking into account the context of them and the pertinence within the development.The structure of this research consists of eight chapters, which are divided into two sections: from the first to the fourth, the theoretical elements - theoretical framework - that will support the second section, which goes from chapter five to eight, where it is specifically developed the theme of the first name and its choice in trans people
