SCHERBOSKY, Federica. The antropofagic subjetivity: contributions to a devoured conception of life. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.2, pp.23-31. ISSN 1851-9490.

This paper arises from the research of the Anthropofagic Movement, originated in Brazil in the twenties. The "anthropofagic subjectivity" is analyzed, since it is considered to have a significant potentiality, because it implies not only an analysis and a criticism of the prevailing subjectivity, but also a rebuilding and a proposal of another kind of subjectivity, which considers the current complexity and specially the challenge of the otherness. The answer here does not strengthen the individual identities, which are entrenched in the tolerance of multiculturalism, but this subjectivity opens to the interpellation of the other, and only from there the sense could be built.

Keywords : Anthropofagic Movement; Subjectivity; Otherness.
