Psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik says Putin is not crazy

1/7

Boris Cyrulnik (85) is a French neurologist, renowned psychoanalyst and essayist.

Boris Cyrulnik answers some of these questions in his latest book Le laboreur et les mangeurs de vent, published this year in French by Odile Jacob. Blick arrives at Cyrulnik at ten in the morning.
