Alice, incorreggibilmente contro fattuale

Stefano Calabrese


The hypothesis formulated by Simon Baron-Cohen and his collaborators on the onset of autistic syndromes and their link with an excess of the so-called S brain is reflected in the  work of Lewis Carroll, a formal logic and mathematics profes-sor deeply inclined to visual and spatial descriptions, interested in affordances and systemic circuits, and devoid of empathic  tendencies in creating his charac-ters.
