WANDERLEY, Alexandre A. Ribeiro. Contemporary narcissism: a Lachian approach. Physis [online]. 1999, vol.9, n.2, pp.31-47. ISSN 1809-4481.

The article resumes some of the main theses on contemporary subjectivity, conceived by the historian Christopher Lasch. Departing from the psychoanalytical concept of narcissism in order to make up a diagnosis of our time, Lasch proposes an interesting relation between the individual and the society - an issue concerning every sociological thought. We intend to support the importance of the Laschian idea of a narcissistic survival ethics in the analysis of a globalized world, where the scarcity of collective ideais and the consequent reversal of policies seem to be pointing at an intensification of investments in the individualist welfare as the sole alternative.

Palabras clave : Contemporary subjectivity; narcissism; psychopathology.
