CARVALHO, Alexandre Filordi de. Governing by debt and functional subjectivity in education: what is the place of disability?. Educação e Filosofia [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.63, pp.1419-1441.  Epub Mar 09, 2021. ISSN 1982-596X.

From the reading of Gouverner par la dette (LAZZARATO, 2014), the aim of this text involves investigating the relationship of the consolidated strategies in a type of society governed by debt with the production of subjectivities. It means think that in this kind of society, the subjectivity is absorbed by some dispositives and the assemblages of debt compelling each one to an own debting experience with a more-perfection that it never gets. Thus, it reduces the possibilities of ways of being in a functional subjectivity. Privileging the disability as a proper value, the interpretive hypothesis points out that the disabled subject is a critical acting and, in the same time, a changeable of the assemblages producers of subjectitivy in the society governed by debt. On the one hand, because the field of disability announces a polyvocity of sens against univocal meanings shapping in societies governed by debt, societies of the State (CLASTRES, 2009). On the other hand, because when it inquire the composition of the unifications of senses it asking the own production of functional subjectivities. At first, it introduces the issue of governing by debt upon a general view concerning the societies of the State e how this relationship indicates to a cultural unifier production. Then, it analyzes the production of subjectivity through the governing by debt. Finally, it approaches the issue of disability as polyvocity of senses around the production of subjectivity, bringing some implications to think the broader role of education in the culture of government by debt, seeing how the subjective dimension can be different from that to which we are destined by the axiology of debt.
