by Massimo Fagioli

This book collects 43 articles that were published in the weekly Italian magazine “Left – Avvenimenti” ( ) throughout 2006. In these articles the author develops his thoughts and the theoretical elaboration of his pratice both as a psychiatrist and as a psychotherapist.

Massimo Fagioli, psychiatrist, was awarded a degree in Medicine from Rome University which he undertook with the specific aim of exploring psychic reality. After working in Venice, Padua, Rome and Kreuzlingen and after more than ten years of research on the reality of psychiatry and so-called psychoanalysis, he proposed, in 1971, the scientific results of his experiences and his training with the publication of Death Instinct  and Knowledge, which caused the most varied reactions. After the publication of Death Instinct  and Knowledge,  other books were published: La marionetta e il burattino, Teoria della nascita e castrazione umana e Bambino, donna e trasformazione dell’uomo. Since 1975 Fagioli has responded to the request of hundreds of people for psychotherapy, creating the Collective Analysis which many attend.
He has also kept a column in the weekly “Left” for the last four years; since 2002 he has taught at the University of Chieti- Pescara. Some of his university lessons have been published in Storia di una ricerca. Lezioni 2002, Das Unbewusste. L’inconoscibile. Lezioni 2003, Una vita irrazionale. Lezioni 2006 and Fantasia di sparizione. Lezioni 2007, published by this editor.
