A psicanálise em face à política: Uma postura e uma análise
MetadataShow full item record
The article proposes to approach the positioning of a certain understanding of Psychoanalysis in relation to capitalist economic policy, in the way it presents itself in society. In this way, the objective of the article was to expose the considerations of Psychoanalysis regarding politics and its agencies in the field of the production of subjectivity, using aesthetics as a loophole to expand its singularizing possibilities towards healing. A research was carried out seeking to weave some considerations linked to what some contemporary psychoanalysts have commented on and reflected on the subject. Finally, accompanying Freud and Lacan, we undertook an interlocution with Marx and aesthetics to better glimpse the scope of these issues. We agree with Lacan that there will only be progress to subvert the discourse of the capitalist if the opportunities to condition the word and the desire are not only for some.
