Summary/Abstract: We shall analyze the hysteria and its relation with the psychoanalytical discourse, as well as the possible consequences of this relation, amongst which the access to a feminine position. While considering the texts of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, we shall examine the way in which the Borromean knot is constituted, especially regarding its axial holes. Furthermore, we shallshed light on the hole existing at the meeting between the body and the real, as a possibility for an other jouissance. This jouissance is illustrated by Jacques Lacan in his seminar Encore by means of mystic jouissance
