In this presentation, held on 15th May 2010 inside the Salone Internazionale del Libro di Torino (Turin International Book Fair), the speakers introduce Massimo Fagioli’s Death instinct and knowledge, highlighting some of the original aspects that distinguish it: the author’s research which strives to make psychiatry into a science and medical art able to cure mental illness; the attention shown to literature and to the intuitions concerning the mental reality of human beings offered by the poets; a particular sensibility towards the German language which is manifested by the use of particular linguistic devices.
