Dissertation Abstract:

This work discusses the way 'madness' and 'family' are produced both
genealogically and archeologically by the anti-asylum discourse. I consider
that this discourse is constituted by four discursive practices: the
psychoanalysis, the theory of heredity, the neuroscience and the systemic
therapy. I analyse these practices from a Foucaultian perspective that
considers the way they produce - politically - the madness and the family
as an object of knowledge. In order to proceed the analysis I use the
following tools offered by Foucault: the conception of power; the
conception of procedures for the production of knowledge and also a short
description about the birth of asylum and the birth of anti-asylum
discourse. Finally, I enhance the political and archaeological discussion
presented in this thesis.
