After comparing the three works, it is evident that the decisions of their characters reproduce certain values idealized by authoritarian cultures. However, the three narratives subvert a status quo insofar as madness reveals a set of beliefs that permeate the subject of reason, who can identify madness in the other.

To this end, it is examined the constitution of the subject, that is to say, how a subject becomes oneself. Through this theme, the characters in these narratives call into question their existence and, especially, their own rationality. Both chapters 3 and 4 seek to underline the correlation between exclusion, identity, and narcissism in the authors examined, as well in our modern world. I argue that this literary correlation is not only aimed at denouncing social segregation, but also at exploring how the actual reasons for excluding the other are deep-seated within ourselves.

This analysis, ultimately, makes emphasis on the pertinence of questions related to philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics to examining current world events, such as the under-representation of women in our postmodern society, the flow of immigrants into Europe in , and narcissism in our capitalist society.

Carlo Ginzburg uses the trial records to illustrate the religious and social conflicts of the society Menocchio lived in. For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate. In his trial testimony he made references to more than a dozen books, including the Bible, Boccaccio's Decameron,
