VIEIRA JR., Cezar Augusto; ROSO, Adriane  e  ARDANS-BONIFACINO, Hector Omar. The gaze of Medusa: thoughts on crack and compulsory hospitalization. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.2, pp. 84-98. ISSN 1809-5267.

This essay is about a theoretical-critical discussion about the compulsory hospitalization device, specifically in cases related to the use of crack. The theoretical development will start from some thoughts about the gaze of the other as an integrating part of this phenomena, through the analogy with the Medusa myth. The analysis will have as a basis the existentialist perspective of Jean-Paul Sartre, bringing to the discussion the neoliberalist context, freedom, possible fields, bad faith, stigma and being-for-others. From this discussion, the debate of compulsory hospitalization as an action of treatment for people who use crack emerges. These people, under the gaze of the other, already have their opportunities restrained as a result of the use of the substance, since the imposition of this treatment culminates in their antipersonification and objectification.

Palavras-chave : Compulsory Hospitalization; Sartre; Crack; Bad-Faith; Stigma.
