ESTEVES, Mauricio Winck  and  COSTA, Luis Artur. The subject of the author: what appears when i write and disappear?. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.2, pp.99-128. ISSN 2236-6407.

The article starts from the problematization of the notion of subject in the exercise of writing to criticize the subject of modernity. Reflects on the emergence of this modern subject in the philosophies of René Descartes, Immanuel Kant and Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis, in its articulations with disciplinary and biopolitical mechanisms, demonstrating the emergence of a triple link between authorship, guilt and property. It emphasizes the articulation in modernity of two subject production technologies: guilt and alterocide, two faces of resentment presented by Friedrich Nietzsche and Achille Mbembe. Finally, from the perspective of the modes of subjectivation, we seek to trace some lines of authorship on the reverse side of modern-colonial resentment: a collective self-invention.

Keywords : authorship; resentment; guilt; alterocide.
