This work puts forward Jacques Lacan’s ideas in relation to segregation. The French psychoanalyst explains that segregation stems from the scientific discourse, and in that sense that this discourse, and the subject it produces. launch themselves the segregation process. Thus, he understands segregation as an organized, rational, planned and consensual phenomenon. In order to explain these ideas, the author draws on tragic historical facts of the twentieth century: Nazi and Soviet concentration camps.
Keywords: Lacan, psychoanalysis, segregation
