FILHO, Manoel Mendonça e VASCONCELOS, Michele de Freitas Faria de. Questions of method and research of the institutional devices of confinement of the present. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1808-4281.
The article begins with a conjunctural analysis which sets, in the last 30 years, work instability processes, hegemony of speculative financial capital over production, rhetoric management of images as a way to domination and dissemination of confinement as a control mechanism which results in the disqualification of life put at disposal of meaningless technicism. Setting their experiences against the backcloth of the 'financial capitalism State in Brazil' image, two researchers intertwine research issues: the analysis of modes of objectification of the so-called security (more specifically the prison system) and mental health (substitutive mental health services) 'public policies'. It is analyzed how such 'policies' articulate and make up with the confinement boom of the last years. Here presented as ethno-interference research, of foucaultian inspiration in dialogue with the most recent formulations of French social analysis and Ethno-methodology, it articulates a way of making research in which proceedings, techniques and instruments constitute themselves oriented by strategic imperative of method that is, at the end, a political-affective decision of commitment with the activation of desire in people as an alternative.
