ABSTRACT. What matters in this text is analysing the justice practices in the living market and how this produces subjects within neoliberalism. For this reason, the text will be divided into three sections. The first will deal with justice as a regime of truth and market; here, we will revise justice practices in medieval times, within disciplinary societies and within neoliberalism. The second will analyse justice practices in German and North American neoliberalism: the former accepts that justice is a function of competition, monopoly, social politics and the incidence of agriculture as a market; in the latter, justice is linked to the theory of human capital and criminality. The last section will reflect on the relation between justice, market and life; it is affirmed that justice practices act upon the subjectivation processes; first, with the subject as a living currency, given that it exists in instability, debt and life expenses, which are opportunities to overcome its decline; secondly, the senses of the subject’s body as instruments and vital powers, thrown and forged in the manufacture of its existence
