The Man of Genius, Cesare Lombroso

How does talent affect the human psyche? Is there any connection between genius and mental illness? Is genius a gift or a disease? You will find the answers to these questions in the book “Genius and Insanity” by the outstanding Italian psychiatrist and criminologist Cesare Lombroso (1835 – 1909), which remains a bestseller since 1863. Having devoted his life to studying the nature of madness and the psychology of a criminal, the author traced the connection between genius and mental anomalies that are revealed under the pressure of environmental conditions. Lombroso diagnoses Aristotle, Rousseau, Hoffmann, Schopenhauer, Mozart, Van Gogh, Gogol, Newton, Goethe and other great people, pointing out the observable similarity in them.
