Joel Gold & Jonathan Goldstein
Greenlight Bookstore, Thursday, July 24 at 7:30pm
Thursday, July 24, 7:30 PM Joel Gold presents Suspicious Minds: How Culture Shapes Madness In conversation with Jonathan Goldstein

Greenlight neighbor Joel Gold, a doctor at Bellevue Hospital, began to notice in 2002 an increasing number of patients suffering from what he began to call the “Truman Show Delusion” – believing that their lives were being filmed constantly and broadcast all over the world. This phenomenon launched Gold and his brother Ian, also a doctor based in Montreal, on a quest to understand the nature of this particular phenomenon, of delusions more generally, and the nature of madness itself. By exploring the major categories of delusion via fascinating case studies and marshaling the latest research in schizophrenia, the Gold brothers’ book, Suspicious Minds, reveals the role of culture and the social world in the development of psychosis. The result is a groundbreaking new direction for thinking about the interaction of the brain and the world around us. Joel Gold talks about his findings and the evolving nature of madness with Jonathan Goldstein, host of the groundbreaking CBC show WireTap.
