The relationship between Lacan and Surrealism goes beyond a temporal coincidence that includes, for example, records of encounters, correspondences, citations in texts, photographs, or theoretical comparisons. Documentary evidence Beyond these coincidences evidenced by documents, there is a non-explicit influence of Surrealism in the development of Lacanian works, from the beginning to the end, which will be explored through research on the surrealist object and also through the proposal of five different moments in the Lacanian theory concerning the formulations of the concept of object. The encounter of the surrealists with a specific notion of object and the concept of \"object a\" for Lacan will be discussed from the via the coexistence of differences and similarities, within their distinctive historical contexts and their ambitions and propositions, aiming at placing both in confrontation once again and thus promoting the most explicit reasons for certain theoretical lacanian propositions and new perspectives on Surrealism, in order to facilitate another course pathway for the discussions concerning the relation between subject and object, in addition to patterns that have been established in perception.
