The zero degree of human nature: the loco is not a sick person, is an animal. Therefore, dressage and the brainwashing are the methods for its domination. The inhumane practices of the internees (whipping, beatings, linkages, mistreatment of any kind) are justified by that free animality of madness, where man no longer exists. (Michel Foucault). The 19th century is dominated by somatic explanations of mental illness; the subject of medical study, psychological disorders were regarded as a brain dysfunction that should be the subject of moral treatment according to the principles set out by the French psychiatrist Philippe Pinel (1745-1826). A complaint is generalized among psychiatrists: mixing on the same site to fools and criminals. A new consciousness of madness arises from the experience of confinement.

It is not a humanitarian attitude toward fools what does that you differentiate them into boarding schools: the mixture is an injustice to other inmates. The madness is individualized increasingly. Since the initial space of the middle ages, chaotic, where mingled crazy and sane, have gone producing increasingly refined separation practices toward madness. However, the madhouses of the time were real crazy pudrideros. The atmosphere, far from promoting the good evolution of the patients, contributed to her decompensation and its disorganization.

The 20th century is characterized by the introduction and development of psychoanalysis, the expansion of the nosologic classification of mental diseases initiated by Emil Kraepelin (1856-1926), the development of Neurology, Physiology and the Biochemistry, foundations for the development of organicist Psychiatry, the rise of psychopharmacology and, finally, the beginning of conceptions psychosociological health and mental illness. Regarding the current situation, even the word patient, mental patient mental, crazy, etc., are still associating with violence and crime, etc. You see these patients as a kind of urban, uncontrollable and violent predators that, even under treatment can explode hurting their peers, judging him on many occasions how unrecoverable, not productive for society, guilty for having this disease, lack of motivation or simply unable to bear the stress by a deficit of character. The World Health Organization (who) and the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) work to demystify mental illness, and since 1992, celebrated on October 10 as World day of Mental health.

Don Quixote

He was born in Havana, Cuba, and its most difficult problem was not a mathematical operation, but Fidel Castro’s revolution. That was the only unfinished equation of the creator of Algebra de Baldor, a quiet lawyer and mathematician who is locked up for long hours in his room, armed only with pencil and paper, to write a text that terrifies and passionate since 1941 to millions of students from throughout Latin America. Algebra de Baldor, even more than Don Quixote de la Mancha, is the most consulted book in schools and schools from Tijuana to Patagonia. Scary for some, mysterious for others and definitely indecipherable for teenagers that they try to solve their sundries at wee hours of the morning, it is a text that remains at the head of three generations who ignore that its author, Angel Aurelio Baldor, is not the terrible Arab man who notes with disdain calculated its frightened students, but the youngest son of Gertrude and Daniel, born on October 22, 1906 in Havana, and bearer of a surname which means Valley of gold and who traveled from Belgium to Cuba without touching the land of Scheherazade. Baldor, the large Daniel Baldor resides in Miami and is the third of the seven children of the famous mathematician. Investor, consultant and finance, Daniel man lived with his parents, six siblings and selfless black nanny who accompanied them during more than fifty years, the drama that was wroth with the family in the days of Fidel Castro’s revolution. Aurelio Baldor was the most important educator of the Cuban island during the 1940s and 1950s. He was founder and director of the Baldor school, an institution that had 3,500 students and 32 buses Street 23 and 4, in the exclusive residential area of Vedado. A quiet and huge, man in love of teaching and of my mother, who today survives him, and that he spent the day devising mathematical puzzles and games with numbers, recalls Daniel, and evokes her father walking with his 100 kilos of weight and his proverbial height of a meter with ninety-five centimeters in the corridors of the school, always with a cigarette in your mouthreciting phrases Marti and with his algebra under the arm, that time, rather than the portrait of intimidating Arab Sage, wore a sober red cover.
