Abstract

In 1956, Jaques Lacan developed the The Graph of Desire, where he explains how Human Nature is tied to a logical order. This system is what we called language, however this must not be misunderstood, as english or others but more as a structure where the individual creates associations that allows them to find a place in the world. The language and its order, is where intolerances like racism, classism and others situate, not as words belonging to the mainstream language, but to the actions that respond to the symbolic and logical order of the language. There's a need to study and reformulate the action of racism, and recognize the political use of oppression in the person's constitution. As a counselor in training, there is a need to know how this logical order situates the victim and the oppressor in their own personal development. In 1977, Foucault publishes 'Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison' where he explains the sociological and political function of gender, race, and their relationship with power. My proposition is not in those fields, but suggest keeping this in hand to understand in depth the location, challenges, and complexes the client in session can have.
