Reading: Anger!

With Johanna Kuroczik

"I have nurtured my anger like a wolf nurtures her cub, and I have found enlightenment, laughter, shelter and warmth where there was no light, no food, no sisters and no refuge."

- Audre Lorde

Anger has a bad reputation. Anyone who gives in to this most explosive of all emotions is not in control, is considered primitive and evil. In the 21st century, the sensible person always remains calm. Yet anger, this firework of energy, is behind every flash of inspiration and the revolutions that have shaped our world.
In her brilliant cultural-historical essay, Johanna Kuroczik paints a nuanced picture of "Ira," the biblical "deadly sin." Can anger, as an engine for change, also bring about good? What does neuroscience tell us about this powerful emotion, and how can we manage to deal with it positively and even use it constructively?

JOHANNA KUROCZIK studied human medicine in Leipzig, with stations in Jordan, India and Australia, and worked as a doctor in a psychiatric clinic in Berlin. This was followed by internships at renowned newspapers. Since 2019, she has been an editor in the science department of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the Sonntagszeitung.

The conversation will be moderated by Dirk Pörschmann.
