MIRANDA REDONDO, Rafael. Instituting for Autonomy Is a Testimony of Migration: From Socialisme ou Barbarie to Cornelius Castoriadis / Agora International. Desacatos [online]. 2011, n.37, pp.49-66. ISSN 1405-9274.
This is an attempt to reframe the imaginary dimension as a space for social transformation. Against the inherited philosophical tradition and its dependency of hypercategory of determination, we revisited a diaspora around Cornelius Castoriadis, committed with a radical political project. The bureaucratic phenomenon criticism takes place in the group and the magazine Socialisme ou Barbarie. An exercise, strongly inspired in the psychoanalytic knowledge will allow us to establish a parallelism between the institutional work for autonomy, the imaginary and social dimension of the displacement, and a new way to understand public service.
