BRANDAO NETO, Bionor Rebouças  and  ORNELLAS, Maria de Lourdes Soares. The segregation of desire in professional "choice" and its subjective impasses in teaching work. Estilos clin. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.3, pp. 407-422. ISSN 1415-7128.

The article discusses the importance of work as a means of affirmation for the subject in his registration in the circuit of civilizing construction. It problematizes the investigation of teaching activity, summoned to a process of reframing in a scenario in which professional choices seem increasingly separated from desire and based on promises of satisfaction unrelated to each other's history. Through the interrogation of a fragment of a clinical case and comments extracted from the internet, the objective of the text is to raise questions about the impacts of the current imperative of enjoyment on professional choices and teaching performance. It is concluded that university education, in a pact with research, needs to find ways to transcend the logic of survival and subsistence and recover what is found in the essence of the word.

Keywords : work and social bond; teaching authorship; segregation of desire; research; university.
