LUSTOZA, Rosane Zétola. The capitalist speech from Marx to Lacan: some consequences for the social bond. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.1, pp.41-52. ISSN 1516-1498.

The article investigates the consequences of the capitalist discourse for the social bond. Taking the works of Karl Marx and Jacques Lacan as point of departure, one aimed to characterize capitalism emphasizing the accumulation of surplus-value as a movement without point of enough that causes in the subject a state of constant insatisfaction that on the other hand is always followed by the enjoyment of some gadget. The limitless character of this process causes an modification on the relationship of the subjetc with the nature, with the other men and with himself, where everything becomes commodities. The subject starts to inhabit a world previoulsy condamned to become a deject.

Keywords : Capitalist discourse; social bond; surplus-value; Marx; Lacan.
