Miguel Benasayag

Origins and future of the livings

Miguel Benasayag, philosopher and psychoanalyst, helps us reflect on the singularity of livings in an era characterized by dispersion and loss of meaning, by the supremacy of the digital world and molecular biology, and by the power of machines.


Miguel Benasayag 1

Miguel Benasayag was born in Argentina, where he studied medicine and served in the Guevarist guerrilla warfare. Arrested, tortured and detained for a long time, he expatriated to France where he began his clinical and research activity.

Philosopher and psychoanalyst, he is the author of numerous books including, Il mito dell’individuo (MC Editrice, 2002); Elogio del conflitto (2008, con A. Del Rey) e Oltre le passioni tristi (2016, con A. Del Rey), published by Feltrinelli; La salute a ogni costo.
