Resumo

In a period of unstable experimentation with challenges of globalization of associated risks, and disenchantment with `enduring injustice', we bring forward a consideration of subjectivity to the study of environmental change and mental health. We begin by identifying how mainstream climate change and mental health studies are unable to explain the emergent and co-evolutionary pathways of agency. As a means of freeing these studies of their objective dimensions of linear-causation, we argue in favour of a re-positioning of subjectivity within an appreciation of recognition conflicts and beyond the over-deterministic interpretations of power centres-state, market or religion. We draw on one example of scientific research that was conducted in a region undergoing strong environmental, social and cultural changes, in the state of Sao Paulo/Brazil, with the aim to open mental health research to new dialogues, to which we contribute with the notion of the `pluriversal subject'.
