RUIZ, Adriana. The narration of human life as a reaction to criminal labelling. Cinta moebio [online]. 2020, n.68, pp.96-107. ISSN 0717-554X.

Labelling separates the common life between those worthy of being lived and the others of any sensitive consideration, both guilty and condemned to the eternal return of the prognosis and criminal repetition. This fact requires rethinking the human, through other perceptual frameworks (epistemological, affective, and methodological) progressively deactivating the immunizing effects of stigmatization of those “dangerous” lives and, consequently, “undesirable” and “intolerable” for the community. This article is based on the immune paradigm (Roberto Esposito), criminal labelling (labelling approach), and criticism as appropriation of human life (Judith Butler). Among the conclusions that this reflection throws is that the narration of existence constitutes a reaction against stigmatization, and, consequently, an inversion of the immune language, while freeing the subject from the monstrous becoming contained in the criminal label, thus revealing a humanity not seen or heard yet.

Palabras clave : condemnation; guilt; stigmatization; immune paradigm; sacrifice.
