  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Market; Neoliberalism; Faith; Belief.

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the «cultural», even before than «economic», transformation that is at the core of neoliberalism: the «faith in the market» is at stake, here, as the main device of global politics. In this direction, it is essential the work of three authors - Weber, Benjamin and Foucault - and, particularly, their critique of the capitalist economy beyond the strictly economic field: areas seemingly unrelated to the economy emerge, in this way, as essential to understand the «religious mechanisms» that govern today, in the predominance of neoliberalism.
