Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course aims to foster discussion on the birth of Western thinking, the son of Greek rationality and 'Christian Eschatology, as output from the "madness" of the gods, with consequent devaluation as "crazy - a-rational" of all that escapes determinations of cause - and effect of non-contradiction.

Course contents summary
Reading and analysis of contemporary and classic psychoanalysis and philosophy on the issue of dichotomy Rationality - Madness.
The presence of madness in everyday human life, in dreams, in love or in all human behavior judged Irrational, causes our inability to "understand" the madness, this is particularly evident in contemporary psychiatry, reduced to pure Pharmacology, where the patient is not cured, but only sedated, to bring his deviance canons rational existence.
The conclusion, given by the teacher, and in connection to the Teacher - Educator, is both provocation and challenge, and the need to reconsider the "Madness" as an essential aspect of human experience, not opposed but connected and tied to rationality, as Soma and Psyche in 'man.
The course will make use of slides prepared by the lecturer, where we will analyze the theories of contemporary authors such as Galimberti, Recalcati, Mancuso and Risè well as references to classics of psychoanalysis and philosophy as Freud, Jung, Foucault, Deleuze and Lacan.
