Abstract

SILVEIRA, Fernando de Almeida. Dreamed-lived bodies: the oneiric dimension of power in Foucault and its relation with the psychology. Psicol. USP [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp.31-46. ISSN 0103-6564.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65642009000100003.

Michel Foucault’s work highlights body, “interpenetrated by history”, as an expression of forces of power and knowledge, which get strategically articulated in the history of occidental society. As “the power is a producer of the individuality and that the individual is a production of the power and knowledge”, the body is a piece within a domination and submission play which is present in the whole social network, in the historical process of production of subjectivity. This research analyzes the oneiric dimension in the genealogy of Foucault and it aims to verify the historical effects of the power and knowledge in the construction of the subjective imaginary, through the body, in a reciprocal approach between Psychology and Philosophy fields.

Keywords : Foucault, Michael, 1926-1984; Body; Soul; Dream; Subjectivation.
