CALIMAN, Luciana Vieira. The values of attention and attention as a value. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.8, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1808-4281.

This article argues that, in the last 300 years of western societies, our direction of attention was influenced by moral; existential; medical; scientific, and economic value. The works of the historians of attention Jonathan CRARY, Michael HAGNER, and Lorraine DASTON are used to analyse the history of the constitution of the values of attention and of attention as a value. We bring back the richness and theoretical diversity of the authors who, working on the concept of attention at the end of the XVIII century and during the XIX century, took part in the historical process of the constitution of the values of attention. We concluded that in the analysed discourses attention was seen and conceptualized in different ways, but its waste was always a target for moral and social assessment.
