Do afeto e da política em um cotidiano (in)sustentável: as trajetórias de vida dos trabalhadores da reciclagem.
This study result from an empirical research that analyses the life s trajectory of four people who
live in a community involved in recycling trash work in Maceió, Alagoas. Participating
observation techniques for daily life s analysis and semi-estructered interviews to re-construct
their life s histories ( defined as the main empirical material) were used for this research. It
focused on the meaning atributed to the experiences lived every day, resulting from analysis of
the me-another pair as unities of signification, processing subjective senses on the journey
elaborated by the subject on private life and public life s discovery. To understand the empirical
material aiming to consider the subjective dimension of Sustaintability s paradigm, we choose
references from Social Historical Psychology ( the two main elements are : the subjectivity s
production od everyday s sharing and affection as an ethical political phenomenon based on
Vygotsky, Heller, Gonzáles-Rey and Sawaia a ideas) and Philosophy and Politics (
comprehending through Arendt s idea of human condition made of private and public
lives dimensions, their separation putting men into loneliness and isolation of a house / village or
in a break up of daily life in the streets and in the city). The empirical material s analysis proved
that the daily meetings, even those around the garbage area, re-meant in the intersubjectivity s
way, allowed human diversity to get argument s discussion, projects and interests ( from the
workers, the associated ones, those who cross their way, people from Public Power) and where
you can assume that the sterile point of view makes them uncapable of readind their own reality,
the four characters try to overcome, in different ways, the suffering they live and wish to be
realized as human projects. That means that condition is re-meant beyond biological survival,
where other subjective senses are elaborated to their existences as human subjects. The study
focuses the dimension of an Ethical State as Home State , therefore everybody s home and
truly human s habitat instituting an Ethic od care of the subject, coming up with the extreme
attitude when it comes to urban environment s economy/ecology. It is important to realize and
understand , for the elaboration of public politics, the evil mechanisms of exploration of people
who are not aware of their rights and make them belong to human comunitty and share their
heritage, values and cultural meanings, but included in a perverted way, by the exploration of
their daily work at the production of richness for recycling trade which is already established. It is
important to intervene, but not to lose their authonomy s potencial showed and their personal and
collective projects sketched in the village nowadays and make it possible to avoid their suffering
and help the subject not to reduce himself / herself to the environmental / human degradation.
Concluding, it is proposed the subject s recovering as a theorical-empirical question, that as long
as it is dynamic, alive and…
