REISHOFFER, Jefferson Cruz  e  BICALHO, Pedro Paulo Gastalho de. Insecurity and production of subjectivity in contemporary Brazil. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.2, pp.425-444. ISSN 1984-0292.

The present article aims to put into analysis the subjectification processes that are taking place in contemporary Brazil, using as an analytical vector the unsecurity issue. The Guattari and Rolnik's concept of subjectivity production is used, articulating the context of public insecurity, in the neoliberal order, with the three functions of "capitalistic subjectivity" propounded by the authors: to lay the blame, to segregate and to infantilize. The sensation of insecurity is strengthened by subjectification processes that make the spread of uncertainty the main element of the social control, as well as by the repression of some specific social groups there are seen as "dangerous classes" in a society that works on the consolidation of democracy.

Palavras-chave : insecurity; subjectivity production; danger; social control.
