CUNHA, Eduardo Leal. Authorship and avoidance: tought, ethics and subjectivation in Michel Foucault. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.3, pp.481-496. ISSN 1984-0292.

The article starts with the arguments of Richard Bernstein in behalf of Foucault' critical attitude in the context of the debate with Habermas, according to whom Foucault's theory about power lacked the explicitness of its normative foundations. We tried to indicate, considering as a ground the conference about the author's function, of 1969, the way in which such an attitude materializes itself precisely in the refusal of assuming a position of enunciation attached to the proclamation of the Truth as well as of the Good. Such a refusal, here named avoidance, makes this critique a permannent one and constitutes itself as an interlacing between philosophical work, ethical problematization and modes of subjectivation

Keywords : ethics; ontology of the present; subjectivation; Foucault.
