ROSA, Miriam Debieux; VICENTIN, Maria Cristina  e  CATROLI, Viviani S. C.. Living in gloomy times: experience and bonds with our contemporaries. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.1, pp. 51-68. ISSN 1677-1168.

Based on ethical and political viewpoints of authors from various fields and on psychoanalysis, this article examines power strategies and the contemporary subject’s predicaments in these gloomy times. It points out some of the consequences of power to the subject of today’s advanced capitalism, particularly those affecting life’s meaning and history. It indicates some means of resistance that entail the displacement of a politically monitored jouissance, lethal to desire, onto a praxis characterized by the rescue of a shared world experience, in which collective processes and the rehabilitation of public spaces may enable the construction of common projects. The article reshapes the notion of contemporariness by connecting several temporalities, thus asserting the construction of an individual way of ascribing meaning to the present. It demonstrates that, by rescuing the experience with one’s contemporaries, it is possible to reinvent life and create pressure mechanisms against submission to a sovereign power.

Palavras-chave : contemporariness; experience; psychoanalysis; resistance; politics.
