The French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan argued that there were four fundamental types of discourse. These could be expressed as the permutations of a four-term configuration showing the relative positions of the subject, the master signifier, knowledge and objet petit a. The four types of discourse were: the Master's, the University's, the Hysteric's, and the Analyst's.
