Professor of psychiatry Damiaan Denys looks at his profession philosophically. He is fascinated by what human beings are not, given the human condition. The human condition is the source of all imagination. Writer P. F. Thomese wrote a novel about a man with the romantic idea of the artist embracing the void and from there reaching great heights, losing sight of reality entirely. After a short introduction by Denys on imagination and the brain Tessel Blok will iinterview them both on imagination and the void, in reality and in literature. A programme on the boundaries between pathology and art. In Dutch.
