Natureza Humana 17 (1):108-143 (2015)

Michel Foucault defends the thesis that man is a recent invention and with a foretold death. In this article, we will present a study that Foucault carried out on Kant’s Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View, and his complementary thesis, as the basis of the thesis of the birth and death of the subject in modernity. Foucault’s philosophy will be presented as a chapter of Kantianism, a critique of anthropological reason that is rooted in Heidegger’s study on Kant. In addition to identifying what influenced the creation of these philosophies, we seek to understand the complex anthropological problems that overlap contemporary philosophy and psychoanalysis. Keywords: Foucault; Kant; Heidegger; death of the subject; anthropology.
Keywords Foucault  Kant  Heidegger  death of the subject  anthropology
