MAN-MACHINE: THE DISCURSIVE PRODUCTIONS AND THE DEVELOPED SUBJECTIVITY PROCESS IN THE INTERACTION OF THE SUBJECT WITH DIGITAL NETWORKS
MetadataShow full item record
The article presents from the analysis of the French Discourse the conception of the subject and its link with the body, reason and meaning effects produced in digital networks. Part of the notion of thinking subject in Cartesian philosophy, in which reason exerts power over the body and matter. The body for Descartes is an obstacle to be overcome by the mind. For Foucault, there is a change from the notion of subject as ontological unity to the notion of the subject as a speech function. For him the subject is made as the product of a socio-biological interaction which makes and remakes according to the function and the position it occupies in the speech act. Digital networks are subjectivity spaces where there is a displacement of the subject in relation to its body that is set aside momentarily as vehicle or wrapper function-subject, giving vent to the free movement of the subject and mind in rhizomatic and digital spaces.
