Inside the virus. The author, professor of Dynamic Psychology at the University of Berga-mo, fell ill with coronavirus and was hospitalized for two weeks. Still in quarantine at home, he writes this testimony and sends it to us, while it is readily published online by the European Journal of Psychoanalysis. The author’s testimony moves towards eclectic reflections that connect viruses and the unconscious. The author notes directly how much the catastrophic impotence experience includes and requires the subtraction of the unconscious system from the domain of human control.
