Après une licence ès lettres classiques à l’université de Genève, j’avais entrepris en 1942 des études conduisant au diplôme de médecin. l. a. double activité médicale et littéraire se prolongea au cours des années 1953-1956 passées à l’Université Johns Hopkins de Baltimore. Je relate ces diverses étapes de mes jeunes années pour dissiper un malentendu. Je suis souvent considéré comme un médecin défroqué, passé à l. a. critique et à l’histoire littéraires. À los angeles vérité, mes travaux furent entremêlés. L’enseignement d’histoire des idées qui me fut confié à Genève en 1958 s’est poursuivi de façon ininterrompue sur des sujets qui touchaient à l’histoire de l. a. médecine, et plus particulièrement de los angeles psychopathologie. » Ce livre reprend los angeles thèse de Jean Starobinski, merveilleux texte d’histoire de l. a. littérature, et suggest d’éclairer les figures prises par los angeles mélancolie au cours des siècles, les formes dans lesquelles los angeles souffrance psychique a été interprétée. Elle fut liée à d’anciens mythes, à toute une mind's eye matérielle (la bile noire, sèche et froide), à los angeles spéculation astrologique, à divers systèmes médicaux qui ont laissé jusqu’aujourd’hui d’innombrables strains dans les littératures et les arts.
