Psychology and Art Conversations

"Hysteria"

Guest: Mine Söğüt

Moderators: Alper Hasanoğlu, Cengiz Arca

Hysteria was a prevalent psychiatric diagnosis in the Middle Ages and the 19th century. Hysteria, especially seen in women, was characterized as a disorder that manifested with physical symptoms. Among these symptoms were fits, paralysis, numbness, and speech disorders. Hysterical women were believed to be this way because they were thought to suppress their sexual desires. In various art forms, the theme of hysteria has been used to express the mental and emotional states of characters and to visually and dramatically convey the symptoms of hysteria.

Cinema: Cinema has been an effective medium for addressing hysteria themes and visually expressing hysteria symptoms. Hysteria often presents itself with physical symptoms such as seizures, paralysis, tics, and speech disorders. Some films deeply explore characters with hysteria and the emotional conflicts they experience. For example, films like "The Piano Teacher" (2001), "Black Swan" (2010), and "The Hysteria of Baron Münchhausen" (1979) are examples that address the theme of hysteria.

Literature: Many authors have addressed hysteria symptoms and the inner conflicts of characters in their literary works. There are novels, stories, and plays that reflect the mental anguish, emotional turmoil, and physical symptoms of hysterical characters. Works such as Henrik Ibsen's "Ghosts," August Strindberg's "Miss Julie," and Diderot's "The Nun" are examples that delve into the theme of hysteria.

Theater: In the theater, plays that bring the physical symptoms, emotional conflicts, and inner worlds of hysterical characters to the stage show the complexity and impact of hysteria to the audience. Plays like Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull" and Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" can be cited as examples that successfully address hysteria themes and the emotional conflicts of characters.
