with Stefano Carta, Attilio Giordano, Luigi Zoja

The two psychoanalysts Luigi Zoja and Stefano Carta, together with Attilio Giordano, editor of Il Venerdì di Repubblica, tackle the issue of war alongside that of the psyche and paranoia.

In his book Paranoia. La follia che fa la storia Zoja writes: “Paranoia is the only mental ailment that directly and profoundly influences history. One paranoid subject may infect the masses.”
