Manipulations, harcèlements et complots : une paranoïsation imaginaire du lien social contemporain ?

Abstract : This study seeks to question the analytical framework of cults based on the notion of mind control. This notion has become pervasive in recent years in the forensic discourse, as well as in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences, to such an extent that it has gradually been applied to phenomena as diverse as cults, Islamic radicalization, and even professional and domestic conflicts, through the theories of psychological harassment. After having exposed what stands at the heart of this analytical framework – a fantasy of a perverse structure – we will attempt to assess what part the invention of the category of ‘narcissistic perversion’ has had in this approach to social phenomena. We will then analyze what can be learned about the paranoization of contemporary social bonds from the emergence of three prevailing figures of the Père jouisseur (the narcissistic pervert, the manipulative guru, and the abuser) in doctrines employing the framework of manipulation. We will conclude this study by discussing the effects of these figures and doctrines on the phenomenon of radicalization.
