Abstract

RIBEIRO, Cynara Teixeira. Which place of the drugs is in the subject? Which place of the subject is in the drugs?. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.2, pp. 333-346. ISSN 1516-1498.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-14982009000200012.

The human practice of consuming drugs is universal and millenary. According to psychoanalysis, the widest visibility of this use in the present time is related to what Lacan coined as address of the capitalist. In a sense, taking this form of address as guidance for acting nowadays, this paper aims at discussing how this discourse relates to the alarming use of drugs in the present time, how it affects each single subject and what influence it has on the way each one relates to drugs and also how it contributes to delimitate the difference between what has been named as 'drug addictions' and the practice of simple drug use.

Keywords : Use of drugs; drug addictions; address of capitalist; contemporary society; Lacanian psychoanalysis.
