BENEVIDES, Pablo Severiano  and  CARVALHO, Tainã Alcantara de. Biopolitics, bioeconomy, subjectivity: an analysis of significant labor changes in contemporary capitalism. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 362-374. ISSN 2359-0769.

This work aims to discuss, from the thought of Michel Foucault, the emergence of political economy as immanent knowledge to the biopolitics and, from that, to situate the relevance of the bioeconomy notion to think about the current forms of regulation and populations government in political context of neoliberalism, in order to highlight the main changes occurred in the labor world from the current settings of contemporary capitalism. To this end, the work was organized by the following structure: a) the relevance of the analysis and use of bioeconomy category was pointed, starting from the construction of biopolitics category in Foucault and from the emergence of the reality of the economic sphere; b) the bioeconomy position in the analysis of the contemporary labor world by the relevance of the category for the analysis of the conditions of the new world of work was highlighted; c) the changes occurred in relation to temporality, under the bioeconomy concept were specified. As the rescue of the category from Foucault himself and the reconstruction test with contemporary authors, it will be noticed that the concept shows itself relevant to a more specific understanding of the labor world changes in the twenty-first century, to the extent that these signal for capturing the subjective dimensions involved in labor activity.

Keywords : bioeconomy; biopolitics; Foucault; work.
