CAVALCANTE, Larissa de Moura; SILVA, Aline Kelly da; GOMES, Carlysson Alexandre Rangel  and  HUNING, Simone. Foucault and Psychology in Brazil: Interlocutions and New Perspectives. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.2, pp. 146-165. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article analyzes how psychology in Brazil has approached the thought of Michel Foucault in academic works published in indexed electronic journals. It is the result of a bibliographic survey on the website of the Virtual Health Library (Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde, BVS-Psi) that included articles published until the year 2013. To begin with, it identifies academic works that associate Foucault's thought with psychology, taking into account the historical period of the works, the sources of the publications, and the institutions from which they arise. Later, it discusses the thematic fields of the texts that dialogue with Foucault's theorizations. In the end, the work points to: (a) the expansion and deepening of the interlocutions between the discipline with the author in works that become established simultaneously in theoretical and political fields; (B) the emergence of new objects and new theoretical and methodological perspectives for psychology; and (c) the effort to build new visions of subject and, consequently, new practices for the field of psychology.

Keywords : Psychology; Michel Foucault; Subjectivity.
