Title in Portuguese
A Pró-Vida: razão ou desrazão? uma análise psicossocial
Keywords in Portuguese
Ciências ocultas
Crenças irracionais
Escola de Frankfurt
Psicanálise
Teoria Crítica
Abstract in Portuguese
Esta dissertação analisa uma organização ocultista, sediada na cidade de São Paulo, com o auxílio da Teoria Crítica da Escola de Frankfurt e da psicanálise freudiana. Pretendemos com isso compreender em parte o processo de formação da subjetividade moderna dentro da sociedade totalmente administrada, bem como discutir a irracionalidade da cultura refletida no sujeito como um eco do social. O trabalho conclui que a transição do capitalismo concorrencial para o capitalismo de monopólios gerou uma busca por valores espirituais muito de acordo com a lógica do consumo de massas. Concluímos também que a irracionalidade de tais renascimentos religiosos, dos quais a Pró-Vida é um exemplo, representam o reflexo da patologia social da razão humana.

Abstract in English
This thesis analyses an occultist organization, placed in the city of São Paulo, with the help of the Frankfurt Schools Critical Theory and the Freudian psychoanalysis. Our intention is to understand in part the modern subjectivity formation process inside the wholly administrated society, and to discuss the culture irrationality reflected on the subject as an echo of the social. The thesis concludes that the transition from concurrent to monopolist capitalism has generated a search for spiritual values according to the logic of mass consumption. We also conclude that this religious revival irrationality, of that which the Pró-Vida group is an example, represents the reflex of the social pathology of human reason.
