SOUZA, Vinicius José de Lima  e  LAUREANO, Pedro Sobrino. Social pathologies and the ideological management of malaise. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.2, pp. 214-229. ISSN 0101-4838.

Nowadays, a question seems to be fundamental for psychoanalysis: how does our time respond to malaise? The Freudian thesis of the irreducibility of malaise removed psychoanalysis from the progressive illusion that advances in scientific knowledge or new forms of social bond would guarantee us the absence of suffering. But the same cannot be said for other discourses that circulate within contemporary capitalist society. We believe that an interesting way to point out one of the main ways of responding to malaise in our time is to demonstrate how psychiatric diagnoses produce subjectivities aligned with social discourses. To this end, the objective of this theoretical essay was to point out how the establishment of social pathologies is supported by an ideological fantasy that seeks to cover the irreducibility of malaise. Thus, we believe we have demonstrated how the production of social pathology through psychopathological diagnoses is an ideological management that tries to neutralize the possibilities of critically positioning itself in relation to the dominant rationality in a given context, and above all, a process of naturalizing discourses. that tries to nullify the transformative potential present in the malaise.
