CAMARA, Gabriel. The role of drugs for a discontent subject in today’s civilization. Cogito [online]. 2012, vol.13, pp.53-57. ISSN 1519-9479.

This article intends to clarify the relationship between the drug-addict subject and the drug object: how does this drug object circulate within his psychic economy and how this subject structures his subjectivity. Initially, from an internal perspective of each subject, as a particular one, the author delineates the possible modes of jouissance associated to the use of drugs. He then approaches the growth of drug use in present days and the importance of Psychoanalysis for subjects inserted in our contemporary civilization discomfort, which is marked by an impoverished symbolic registry and a clear decline of the paternal function.

Palavras-chave : contemporaneity; paternal function; jouissance; toxicomania.
