Identities and situations: considerations about emancipation

In this work, we crossed the ways of the subjectivity's constitution asking us for the subjects and their identities. We propose that the identity is only in a relationship with another, retaking the theoretical perspectives from differents languages (the approaches about situations, the psychoanalysis, the political philosophy). The social bow, the situation, the identity project, the debt of life, the symbolic law and the words that name the subject, are concepts that speak, in differents ways, about the processes of emancipation in which the human beings become what they are, witth others, from others, next or separated from others. The "ignorant teacher", descripted by Jacques Rancière, is an interesting way to think a different form of emancipation in a relationship with another.
