FRANCA NETO, Oswaldo. Truth, event and subject. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.2, pp. 365-382. ISSN 0103-5665.

This text seeks to scrutinize the concept of truth, placing it as inseparable from the concepts of event and subject. It proposes that truth would be an excess in relation to the field of existence, since in order to preserve itself eternal and non-particularizable, it could not be located or discerned as an object. Understood as a quantitative excess, according to philosopher Alain Badiou, three great distinct orientations of thought would have been constituted in the history of civilization to try to solve the problem of the impossibility of locating the truth. Recently a fourth orientation would have emerged, when then the term event would have gained relevance. The event would be the impossible and ephemeral location of truth, leaving behind a mark. A subject is constituted in adherence to this mark, sustaining its unfolding. As a consequence of this proposed necessary link between truth, event and subject, the presentation of these in the field of existence would always be historical, disqualifying transcendences and unfolding as a subversion of what is standardized.

Palavras-chave : truth; event; subject.
