This afternoon Daniel Honan in “Inside the Mind of a Psychopath” shoved a new book under my nose. What excited me was Kevin Dutton’s book “The Wisdom Psychopaths.” Think about this, on the 24th of this month there will be a “happy talk” between Michael C. Hall and the author Kevin Dutton.
Here is a quote from the Rubin Museum of Art‘s webpage announcing the event:
“In this groundbreaking adventure into the world of psychopaths,…the renowned psychologist Kevin Dutton argues that there is a fine line between a brilliant surgeon who lacks empathy and a Hannibal Lecter who kills for pleasure. Incorporating the latest advances in brain scanning and neuroscience, Dutton reveals that there is a scale of “madness” along which we all sit. In this on-stage conversation, Dutton will test his theories on the actor who embodies psychopathic qualities in his role on Showtime’s Dexter, Michael C. Hall.”
