The emptied soul: on the nature of the psychopath
From Blackbeard the pirate to Ted Bundy, psychopaths have stirred feelings of seduction and terror for us. Psychiatrist Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig explores psychopathology and presents a whole new vision: that it is not so much a deficiency of morality as it is a crippled eros. Guggenbuhl-Craig also exposes the successful psychopath in business, professions, and politics.
