ALBUQUERQUE JUNIOR, Artur Julio de  and  PARAVIDINI, João Luiz Leitão. The good citizen's speech and the logic of the superego. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-24. ISSN 1983-8220.

The objective of this work is to propose a reflection about the subjective foundations of what we allegorically call of good citizen's speech. We postulate that the articulation of the discursive dimension of the good citizen is homologous to the paradoxical dialectics of the action of the superego, which circumscribes the regime of the law, while at the same time safeguards, in its most basic constitution, a statute completely outside the law. Finally, we analyze the effects of this conjuncture from some social reactions to an event coming from the field of art: the exhibition "Queermuseu". We emphasize that the claims of the good citizens, who proclaim the protection of family, moral and decency, denounce the impetus, of these subjects, to overcome the conditions of their own ideals.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Good citizen; Superego; Art.
