  • Moisés Tractenberg

Abstract

This exclamation made by Jesus just before dying could also appear in the unconscious fantasy, a posteriori, of a male child who has undergone ritual circumcision, or in that of Oedipus, whose feet were pierced with an iron pin on the orders of his father Laius shortly after he was born.
