Focusing on the contagious aspects of paranoia and its infectious, self-replicating dynamics, Zoja reconstructs the emblematic arguments that paranoia has promoted in Western history, and examines how the power of the modern media and mass communication has affected how it spreads. Paranoia examines how leaders lose control of their influence, how the collective unconscious acquires an autonomous life, and how seductive its effects can be – more so than any political, religious, or ideological discourse.

June 4 @ 13:00 - 17:00

Paranoia is a powerful force, shown throughout history to have a devastating impact on entire societies. While other forms of mental illness are far more immediate — only paranoia can literally make history, as it did through Hitler and Stalin. It takes hold of events directly because, unlike the rest of pathology, it is contagious. Far from being individual, its dynamics are self-replicating. Once infected, the collective uncounscious acquires an autonomous life that cannot be controlled. Currently, modern media and…

Far from being individual, its dynamics are self-replicating, devouring entire societies, which once infected, acquire an autonomous life of their own. From the solitude of Sophocles' Ajax, to the sickness of…

In this presentation based on his 2017 book, Paranoia – The Madness that makes History, Zoja will focus on paranoia as a mental condition that can literally make history, as it did through Hitler and Stalin. Paranoia, he argues, can take hold of events directly because, unlike the rest of pathology, it is contagious, and its dynamics are self-replicating and capable of devouring entire societies. Masquerading behind false logic, paranoia can be fatally attractive and often far more seductive than…
