Suicide: symptom or syndrome?

Cantarano E., Carini L., Doriani A., Bruni P.


PDF  


Many suicides are based on a substantial ambivalence between intentionality of life and intentionality of death. Intentionality is the element that conventionally defines the suicide's action and at the same time is also justified by particular doctrines and traditions. The indecipherable problem of suicide appears to remain the mysterious limit of an act carried out to avoid an adversity or to ensure good, namely it is an act that does not appear to have an aim.
