Psychiatry & Psychotherapy Podcast


Oct 13, 2021

In this episode, we will be discussing some of the themes within Fyodor Dostoevsky’s legendary text, Crime and Punishment. It deals with the suffocating guilt and uneasy journey towards redemption of impoverished ex-student, Raskolnikov, who commits a horrific murder of a pawnbroker and tries to justify it, unsuccessfully, with noble purposes. Not only is the novel a stellar thriller, its themes deal with the eternal struggle between good and evil that encapsulates the human condition.
