NETO, Oswaldo França. Psychoanalysis, the State and the major street demonstrations. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.2, pp. 351-364. ISSN 0101-4838.

This paper aims to make a possible psychoanalytic reading of large street protests that marked the country in 2013. It proposes to correlate the State functioning, its manner of organizing itself as a representative structure and its mechanisms of maintaining the status quo, with the logic of awareness. As for the insurgencies, using conceptual tools offered by Freud, Lacan and Alain Badiou, it proposes to approach them using the functioning of the unconscious. Finally, from the considerations made, it rescues the notion of community, in opposition to capitalism.

Keywords : street protest; representativeness; policy; community; capitalism.
