GUTIERREZ VERA, Daniel. The Texture of the Social. Rev. Mex. Sociol [online]. 2004, vol.66, n.2, pp.311-343. ISSN 2594-0651.

Structuralism promoted the term "discourse" to a central place in the analysis of social phenomena. However, authors have bestowed different meanings upon this notion, equating it with parole, enunciation and its mechanisms, communication, performative acts of speech, and so on, up to Lacan, for whom "discourse" is what makes up the social links. I propose to reconsider from this standpoint Sociology's traditional object of study-the social bond. As a result, we will be able to free the consideration of the social link from any form of essentialism.

Keywords : social bond/social links; Psychoanalisis; Sociology; discourse; Lacan; structuralism.
