BAPTISTA, Luis Antonio  and  SILVA, Rodrigo Lages e. The city of the angels of unextendable. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp. 49-73. ISSN 2238-152X.

The city has been object of countless writings. Cursing it write the deserters while depart to its country houses or self-sustainable communities. Claiming for it write the occupiers at schools, abandoned buildings, parks, universities. Concerned write the economists with its sacred probabilities. What makes unextendable that we write the city? On this quest we screened a character haunted by a voice which urges him to walk on the Rio de Janeiro’s streets that disorientates his senses intoxicated by comfortable certainties. On the following we analyze this process by the light of the Epicurus and Lucretius’ philosophical materialism, aiming to propose an urban writing that doesn’t interpret urban phenomena but transgressing the senses creates cities and subjectivities.

Keywords : City; Writing; Philosophical Materialism.
