CARVALHO, Matheus Cotta de. The relationship subject-work-organization in the contemporary era and psychoanalysis: an exit or a devil’s pact?. Reverso [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.56, pp. 93-101. ISSN 0102-7395.

This paper aims to study the subject/work/organization relationship from the point of view of psychoanalysis. This approach promotes the observation of such subjects in the organizational environment in a new perspective. The context is capitalism in its post-industrial phase, together with the hegemony of the capital discourse. In the contemporary era, the role reserved to the subject by the capital is of the consumer itself. Modern organizations now demand a new professional profile, which is different from the model used during the industrial era. The subject struggles to deal with this new scenario, which offers him new possibilities to articulate enjoyment and desire. Which role does psychoanalysis play in regard to new challenges brought to the contemporary era? Is it possible to think of psychoanalysis as a way out of job-related dilemmas of Post-Modernity, or would psychoanalysis be risking to establish a pact with devil?

Keywords : Capital discourse; Desire; Enjoyment; Post-Modernity.
