The problem of the Oedipal organization is discussed from the viewpoint of the progressive structuring of a particular psychic object, the "object couple". This object is originally derived from the first representations of being in relationship with the mother, i.e., from a first "relational style". This first representation later becomes more complex when the father begins to be an object of desire from the mother, and the child progressively organizes his schemas from "schemas of being with the object" to "schemas of being with an object who is with another object". The child later will continue the construction of the "object couple" in his experiences where he will be able to be "alone with his libidinal drive in the presence of the couple". The Oedipal situation will be constructed according to different types of libidinal organizations that will appear in the course of development.
