Semper dolens. Historia del suicidio en Occidente

Acantilado, 2015 | Semper dolens. A History of Suicide in the West

(Semper dolens. A History of Suicide in the West) Thought of for many centuries (in line with the Classical school of thought) as an exercise in freedom, or even as a release, the psychiatry of the last few decades has reduced suicide to its current status as a mere pathology. And yet this reductive approach has side-lined what is one of the core elements of human experience; pain. With a delicate touch and a depth of understanding, this extraordinary essay speaks to our condition as humans; to the various guises our fragility takes.
