HENRIQUES, Rogério da Silva Paes  e  LEITE, André Filipe dos Santos. The divinatory arts and the psychiatry of the future. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.1, pp.81-86. ISSN 1984-0292.

Psychiatry is studied as “divinatory art” engaged in predicting the future. It is intended to mark the management of life as a biopolitical enterprise linked to contemporary psychiatry. Therefore, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Fifht Edition (DSM-5), edited by American Psychiatric Association (APA), is analyzed focusing the discussion about the notion of risk, establishing primary prevention a major goal of the psychiatric field. This reflects the reintroduction of dimensional axis into the categorical model adopted by DSM that produces a diagnostic inflation, and denotes the discontents of contemporary psychiatry front of their scope and limits.

Palavras-chave : DSM-5; risk; primary prevention; biopolitics.
