Psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik says Putin is not crazy


Boris Cyrulnik (85) is a French neurologist, renowned psychoanalyst and essayist.

Can we celebrate Russian defeats if it means young people are dying at the front? Why do people like to go to war so much? And why does Vladimir Putin (70) like to go to war so much?

Boris Cyrulnik answers some of these questions in his latest book, Le laboreur et les mangeurs de vent, which was published in French this year by the Odile Jacob publishing house. Blick arrives in Cyrulnik at ten in the morning. We only have time to greet each other through our screens before the screen freezes. The conversation continues with a phone call to the south of France.
