Psychoanalytic Parallels Between the Terrorists and Terrorized
Elaine Gould, PhD

The universality of the potential for violence and destructiveness against others as seen in terrorist acts, and appearing throughout history, will be explored from a psychoanalytic perspective, considering psychodynamic, intra-psychic mechanisms that can be found not only in the terrorist, but in the “terrorized” as well. Among the concepts to be explored will be how heinous acts of cruelty can involve even strong superego functioning and how certain moments in history facilitate the emergence of such behavior.
