Because we have the name of the seminar, “The Names of the Father,” and as we have the name of the seminar, however we can say that there is no seminar of Lacan that corresponds to this name.
The fact that there is a name allows us to say that there is no corresponding seminar to this name.
We are dealing here with a seminar by Lacan which does not exist.

This name will be presented as a proper noun, that is as a proper name.The name “The Names of the Father’,” the title, was announced by Lacan in 1963 for the academic year 1963-1964.We know that Lacan delivered the first lesson of this seminar and then came to a halt: silence …As if—we could venture into the “as if” raised by this hole—to meddle with the Name-of-the-Father in psychoanalysis was still impossible, as if the Name-of-the-Father should remain under a veil, as if those who dare to interfere with the Name-of-the-Father were doomed to some act of vengeance, as if some kind of curse was attached to the Name-of-the-Father, the curse of the Pharaoh.
