 The Insane President and Female Pleasure: Metamorphoses in madness, myth and art


Whatever is brought to life has to be transformed or die.
 
The theme of transformation in paranoia, myth and art
 
The enthralling Memoirs of My Nervous Illness by president Schreber, analyzed by Freud and Lacan. Euripides’s Bacchae and Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Dali’s critical / paranoid method, and the work of painters such as Hieronymus Bosch, Goya, Vrube, Klimt, De Chirico, Delvaux, Duchamp and Diamantis Diamantopoulos, an underestimated Greek painter of great magnitude. Transformations of love and death, madness and creation. This book presents the landmarks of a journey from psychoanalysis to myth and art while attempting to answer the riddles that perplex psychiatrists, natural scientists, anthropologists, art historians and artists. The numerous color illustrations create a parallel interactive subtext.

Read more about the book in the Readers Guide, where one may also find a sample of a video clip directed by the author: Schreber versus Schreber.
