The general aims of the project is to investigate Felix Guattari's thinking in such perspective to updating its analytical-conceptual power toward the area of Education. In a specific way, it privileges to investigate how the school machine has been assembled and disassembled according to the productive interests of the contemporary capitalist society. At the focal point of this question is the production of subjectivation optimized by attitudes, behaviors, actions and ways of make connections at the expense of the logic of the capitalist machine itself. The analytical hypothesis is that the experiences of micro revolutions of desire can urge their subjects to act in order to short-circuit the current state of the school machine, producing singular relationships that don't needs replicate the coefficients of subjective domination. In this perspective, think the topography of the school is to active ruptures and atopies, produce others connections of assemblages considering the school and educational experiences, create other derivations that enhance the production of subjectivation considering the processes of singularization and group relations - group-subject, resisting, then, the own mode of prevailing production of desire and subjectivation. Because this is a theoretical research, the methodology is based mainly on the bibliographical research of the work of Félix Guattari, its interpreters and commentators. (AU)
