LOURENCO, Lara Cristina d’Avila. About violence and the contemporary human being. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.1, pp. 64-73. ISSN 1414-9893.

This report proposes a reflection about the underlying violence of certain situations faced by human beings. An analysis of the contemporary occidental human beings and their ways of life was made based on the freudian and lacanian psychoanalytic theory and on Heidegger´s and Merleau-Ponty´s perspectives. Our interpretation presupposes that the only way civilization may inhibit man’s aggressiveness is through promises that give support to the human beings. Thus, we ask ourselves: what promises are made today? This question guides our hypotheses about the human being, among them, the current objectivation of the human condition.

Palavras-chave : Aggressiveness; Civilization; Human being; Psychoanalysis.
