This article analyzes public health through some historical-theoretical lines that have become possibility conditions to associate health with a logic constituted as a public territory. The public system in the health field has enabled the constitution of masses, epidemics, poverty, and work as intervention objects of the modern State. Those lines circumscribe ways of existence in particular time-spaces, such as the Greek and the European experiences, which approximate the public system to health: public system, health and politics; public system population and epidemics. Such an approach situates certain forms of subjectivation by means of a publicization device, which converts private into public. In this article, Foucauldian conceptual tools have been employed in articulation with Robert Castel¿s and Hanna Arendt¿s thoughts.
