French term or phrase: faire tenir ensemble
Un Etat est une personne sous statut institué de fiction et c’est à cet Etat-sujet de droit, instance garante de la causalité dans le montage législatif et judiciaire, que sont imputées les catégories dites de droit des personnes, notamment en ce qu’elles traitent de la division des sexes, de la parenté, etc . (…) l’opération langagière comporte l’échange actif entre la matérialité et sa construction indéfinie dans la représentation. Ainsi spécifié, ce faire tenir ensemble désigne exactement ce qu’on nomme, d’un terme aujourd’hui émoussé, symbolisation .

English translation:this "holding together"
Explanation:
This kind of abstraction is hard to translate so that it is near-penetrable in English! I think it's better to put the term in quotes to make it more structurally readable: this "holding together" designates precisely what is called symbolisation.
