The essay takes its cue from the reflections on normative ambivalence and obedience dilemmas elaborated by Robert Merton, Stanley Milgram and Erving Goffman, using them as reference points to analyze a contemporary case of obedience dilemma - that is the trial of the doctors and nurses accused of the death of a psychiatric patient (Franco Mastrogiovanni) who died in 2009 during a compulsory medical treatment - reconstructed through documentary analysis of the sentences issued by the three orders of judgment.
