ANTUNES, Ricardo. The exercise of subjectivity: the innocent reifications and the estranged reifications. Cad. CRH [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.spe1, pp. 121-131. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792011000400009.
This text explores, analytically and empirically, the problem of alienation and (or) estrangement, seeking to help in the intellection of the socio-historical foundations that provide it to flourish within the modern capitalist enterprise. To do so it performs the following movements: first, starting with Marx's seminal theoretical concepts, it attempts to indicate the different forms assumed by the alienaton and (or) estrangement throughout the twentieth century and early twenty-first century, exploring some of its main features. In its second motion, it outlines a phenomenology of subjectivity, exploring, as a hypothesis, the rich analytical possibilities existing in Lukács's mature work, in particular his notions of innocent reification and stranged reification, fertile as clues to understand this social phenomenon in capitalism today.
