Perth: Clunie, 1975. 9. Jacques Lacan, Le Stminaire. LivreX. Uangoisse [Anxiety], op. cit. 5 The Logic of the Phallus THE MEANING OF THE PHALLUS Lacan's 1958 lecture at the Mark Plank Institute of Berlin, titled "The Signification of the Phallus,"1 made it clear that we must differentiate between two fundamental theses, namely, the thesis on the meaning of the phallus, and the notion of the phallus as signifies In the first case, from the point of view of meaning according to the logic of the phallus, the penis becomes the referent—it refers to the presence of the visible sexual organ.
