Drops of Light into the Darkness: Migration, Immigration, and Human Rights

Spyros D. Orfanos, Ph.D., ABPP

This essay is structured like a mosaic with a sequential passage from piece to piece. The author begins with observations on the documentary film 4.1 Miles about refugees smuggled across the Aegean Sea from Turkey to the island of Lesbos in Greece. A discussion about migrant dislocation and dispossession follows along with the implications of the “other.” What about the other? This leads to explorations in human rights and psychoanalysis and how the personal became political for the author.

In memory of Giorgi Alexandros Orphano
