Davide Doardi

In spite of the strenuous efforts made by the PsA movement to keep in life an hagiographic biography of the founder, it is by now known the guy had some serious issues with social recognition, friendship, authority and even basic trustworthiness. This does not mean everything developed within this psychological tradition has to be rejected as useless or untrue, on the contrary (concepts such as internal objects, defenses, attachment, etc. are very useful)
But at times some ot his delusions percolates into theories that are still used as dogmas (Oedipus, Death instinct, and alike) to be read into the clients' minds. The damage caused by this despotic and unreliable reconstructions has still to be assessed in its full range - but nonetheless discarded with non chalance by the establishment as a sympton.
