LEMOS, Flávia Cristina Silveira; GALINDO, Dolores; NASCIMENTO, Maria Livia do  and  TOMAZ, Luanna. Conversations between psychology and education in practices of moralization, standardization, and legalists. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.47-54. ISSN 2175-3539.

This article approaches a bibliographical research of some concepts of Michel Foucault to think about democracy in relation to education, political psychology, and governmentality. To do so, it analyzes practices of domination, violence, and ethics, in the subjectivity and aesthetics of existence in the production of freedom. Thus, historical events are used for the problematization of the present in which we live, among them some of the so-called New Brazilian Republic and the contexts of globalization, medicalization, life endeavors, and citizenship that has been valorized by the legal and medical-psychological exception. Bringing the courage of truth to ethics, aesthetics, and politics helps us analyze issues that trouble us, cross us, move us historically to problematize certain processes of subjectivity today.

Keywords : Democracy; psychology; education.
