GAVARINI, Laurence. The institution of sujects: an attempt to overcome dualism and the influence of neoliberalism in human sciences. Rev. Dep. Psicol.,UFF [online]. 2005, vol.17, n.1, pp. 11-28. ISSN 0104-8023. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-80232005000100002.
The article proposes a debate on the dualisms found in human sciences, in concepts as individual and society, subject and institution, or in the reference fields of sociology and psychoanalysis. It analyses the notion of institution as being dynamic and the concept of subject in psychoanalysis, locating the discussion within the contemporary neo-liberalism, which promotes the almighty individual, master of his own destiny, created in the culture of individualism. Starting with the critique of the violent institutions and the forces of oppression, it ends up with the discussion of the contemporary crisis of subjectivities, and proposes de deconstruction of polarizations.
