Portuguese term or phrase: ponto de basta
A higienização do pensamento pontuada pelo analista sob a forma de significantes-mestres, sustenta o efeito terapêutico em questão, pois permite que o analista trabalhe em meio às contingências dos significantes e proponha nesse espaço uma resolução possível, um ponto de basta que destruiria a contradição expressa pela fórmula ‘ou...ou’.

Point de Capiton or “quilting point” “anchoring point” is the interaction of the signifier and the signified which they are knotted together, fixed and stablized. In the daily symbolic world of discours, the continuous unstable sliding of the signifier is separated from that of the signified. If not with the point de caption, there would not be a fixed position to situate the dissemination of meanings. On those quilting points, the meaning is distributed, disseminated and stablized just like an upholstery button stitching on the material.
