This work came about due to the erasure of my master's research on Desire in Saint Augustine, which made me raise a question about the desire of women and the erasure of their names. Not fitting into a so-called "traditional" way of doing research within the History of Medieval Philosophy, nor having "the rigor necessary to be a historian of medieval philosophy", I decided to pursue the origins of the erasure of my name. As I was pregnant, experiencing the puerperium and mothering during this entire research journey, I carry in my body the marks of everything that was transmitted to me about a certain position. The bet is that the possible transformation would be through the analyst's desire, who supposes a subject where there is usually an object, subjected as such.
