MIZOGUCHI, Danichi Hausen  and  SOUZA, Alice De Marchi Pereira de. The urgency of the restlessness: a non-postponable militancy. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp. 25-48. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article deals with the possible relations between the last course given by Michel Foucault in the Collège de France - The Courage of Truth - and the urgencies of political militancy demanded by a world that never ceases to happen. Thus, it draws two brief and almost unimportant passages from Foucault's 1984 course - the initial and final excerpts - in which Foucault announces a delicate relationship with time: between the late and the too late. It is, then, between the late and the too late that the attitude of militancy is allocated - when the world demands the non-extendable, when there is much to be done, when the struggle becomes the opening force of what one already is. The article is made in two intercalated movements: the approximation with the classes taught by Foucault and the narrative of a militant - performatizing the non-extendable junction between the courage of the truth and a non-fascist life.

Keywords : SoTime; Militancy; Ethic; Truth.
