    Geniets patologi: En studie i 1800-talsmedicinens genibegrepp2015In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 53-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the mid-nineteenth century, the ancient notion that genius is a form of insanity suddenly became the topic of intense medical interest. Beginning with the French physician Lélut’s 1836 study of Socrates, Du démon de Socrate, a number of prominent nineteenth century doctors developed theories that sought to explain genius with reference to various medical conditions. The most important and controversial of these theories was Cesare Lombroso’s attempt in L’uomo di genio (1888) to show that genius, just like the innate tendency to commit crime that he claimed to observe in the majority of the criminals, was a form of masked epilepsy. Lombroso’s opponents, in particular the followers of the French Lyon school, developed an alternative theory according to which genius was a higher form of reason and a future, more highly developed form of human appearing in advance. The paper seeks to demonstrate that the medical theories of genius were in fact an important scientific topic in the late nineteenth century. It aims to show that Lombroso’s notion that genius was a positive counterpart to the born criminal, whose intuitive insights can be put to use by science and solve the very problems that the born criminal causes, meant that the theories on genius were in fact an aspect of criminal anthropology that was much more important than the previous research has noted.

    Den upptagna rösten: kassettbandets roll vid Foucaults Paris-föreläsningar och i hans Iran-reportage 19782015In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 165-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the fall of 1978 Michel Foucault went to Iran to study the revolutionary movements first handedly. Largely ignoring the scholarly debate regarding whether his observations were accurate, reasonable, embarrassing, critical, naïve, consistent or not, I wish instead to turn the attention of Foucault’s encounter with Iranian protests in a different direction. A closer study of Michel Foucault’s observations in Iran as published in the Italian newspaper Corriere della sera at the time will reveal his strong interest in the media technologies used in the revolutionary struggle. Foucault is particularly keen on tracking the informal infrastructures of cassette tape trading. He reports of an entire communications network based on cassette tapes and players with participants from commercial, religious and other social communities parallel to the government’s broadcasts. According to Foucault in 1978, these grass root technologies will ultimately determine the outcome of the revolution. To be sure, the usages of the cassette tape were no novelty to Michel Foucault. For years, his series of lectures at the Collège de France had been overcrowded not only with listeners but with tape players spinning on his desk by the dozen, like some intellectual counterpart to the bootlegging of rock music performances. In this article, I argue that Foucault did have something explicit to say about the power of media and that it was insightful yet limited in scope. In the process of this argument, I find it necessary not only to ask about the role of small media in political battle but also about the status of the lecture – taped or not – in the body of work of an author. From the vantage point of the compact cassette tape, I try to demonstrate how this technology ended up supporting profoundly different uses among activists and audiences in Paris and Iran in the seventies.

    Kristendomens Plotinos: Till frågan om swedenborgianismens nyplatonska ursprung1991In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 231-238Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to show Swedenborg’s direct and indirect acquaintance with works of Plotinus and Porphyry, and with Neo-Platonic thought in general. Swedenborg early acquired the Enneads of Plotinus, and when he read the pseudo-Aristotelian work De secretiore parte divinae sapientiae secundum egyptios, in fact a compilation made by Plotinus’ disciple Porphyry, he took down in his philosophical notebook that this work was too sublime to be written by Aristotle and by far surpassed the teachings of Plato.
