Summary:
In this work the author seeks to deal with interpretations about madness from the perspective of Dogon society, a black African society in West Africa. Through tales that have been transmitted for several generations, we have a set of stories that show how this society seeks to resolve a situation that, often, brings with it an emerging pain that needs to be explained and treated. In Itineraries of Madness in Dogon Territories, we can see how a society deals with such a delicate subject in such a unique way. In this way, by bringing issues related to the mental health of its individuals, the work contributes, showing us several notes that aim to reflect on a subject as difficult to be approached as madness and its implications in individual and social life. 2005 Jabuti Award:
