KLEIN, Alejandro. Study and the metonymic institution in adolescence: neoliberalism is the making of substitutes. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2006, vol.12, n.20, pp. 182-192. ISSN 1677-1168.

This article intends to investigate how one of the consequences of the link generated between certain adolescents and the neoliberal context consists of an exchange in their capacity to integrate with the school. A trophic social contract changes into a thanatic one, in which the adolescent, rather than occupying the place of an excluded-transgressive person, starts to occupy that of a substituteexpiating one. This thanatic contract is characterized by the figures of scarcity and the scarce item, through the ominous work of social expulsion. Thus, the article proposes a revision of the problem of student desertion, highlighting the absence of irreversible entrance processes rather than the increase in exit processes.
