From the dramatic Triangle of Karpman to the Cursed Square

Du Triangle dramatique de Karpman au Carré maléfique

NRT 141/3 (2019) p. 466-484
Author : Pascal IDE
Summary. - The object of this article is a psychological scenario of great pertinence, the Dramatic Triangle of Karpman (DTK), which unfolds between three characters: the Prosecutor, the Victim and the Saviour. The psychological interpretations are superficial and above all ambiguous. Philosophy allows us to interpret DTK starting from violence, from defining the three characters with precision and from taking up the ambivalences by dividing them in two: Regulator-Prosecutor; Victim-Supposed Victim; Saviour-Rescuer. Philosophy also allows us to amplify it with a fourth character: the Avenger, who is himself a caricature of the Judge. Finally, this model of violent transactions has relevance for the Scriptures.
Keywords : Key words. - Violence | Evil | Triangle of Karpman | Persecutor | Victim | Saviour
