Further Details
Abstract This article exemplifies a kind of tension that has been caused by the emergent world order; specifically, the one that has been established between the economic and social rationalities. In order to do so, it portrays the description that the 'Asociacion Nacional Pro-Referendo Ley 100' (ANPR) made of the Colombia's Health System in an article called: 'Documento Parcial Preparatorio.' From this article we can highlight some metaphors that exemplify the before mentioned tension, the actors involve in it and the proposed political action. In addition to that, there is a use of the cyborg image (Haraway, 1991), the idea of the symbiotic contract (Serres, 1990), and the concept of the organizational government (Schvarstein, 2003) to translate the ANPR's discourse and seek new ways of thinking. This article should not be taken as a reflection of the Health System's reality. Instead, it should be taken as a possible reading to be given a second thought in order to produce a broader vision of the situation and a new point of view.
