Psychology and Art Conversations

"Paranoia"

Guest: Alper Canıgüz

Moderators: Alper Hasanoğlu, Cengiz Arca

Paranoia is a condition characterized by unfounded beliefs, excessive distrust, a constant sense of suspicion, and deceptive thoughts that others are trying to harm the individual. Various forms of art provide an opportunity to understand, question, and empathize with paranoia themes and the experiences of paranoid characters. They also encourage viewers and readers to think deeply about paranoia and psychological tension.

Cinema: Cinema is a powerful medium for addressing paranoia themes and visually expressing paranoid characters. Paranoia is often characterized by a constant sense of suspicion and distrust. Some films delve into characters experiencing paranoid disorder and their unfounded beliefs and suspicions. For example, films like "The Conversation" (1974), "The Machinist" (2004), and "Black Swan" (2010) are examples that explore paranoia themes and the experiences of paranoid characters.

Literature: Paranoia is a frequently explored theme in literature as well. Paranoid characters often perceive the world around them with unfounded beliefs and suspicions. In literary works, paranoia themes are often combined with stories involving tension, mystery, and psychological conflicts. For instance, works such as Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis," Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment," and Patricia Highsmith's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" are well-known examples that tackle paranoia themes.

Opera: Opera provides an effective platform to express paranoia themes dramatically and musically. Operas that bring the inner world and experiences of paranoid characters to the stage offer the audience a profound emotional experience. Paranoia themes are often combined with tension, betrayal, and psychological conflicts. Operas like Richard Strauss's "Elektra" and Alban Berg's "Wozzeck" are examples that explore paranoia themes.

Theater: Theater is an effective medium for expressing paranoia themes through live performances and offering the audience a profound emotional experience. Plays that bring the inner world and experiences of paranoid characters to the stage allow the audience to establish an emotional connection and observe the effects of paranoia. Paranoia themes are often combined with mystery, tension, and psychological conflicts in plays. Works like Patrick Hamilton's "Rope," Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," and August Strindberg's "The Ghost Sonata" are examples of well-known works that address paranoia themes.
