YEBENES ESCARDO, Zenia. The Border: An Altered State Boundary. Alteridades [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.56, pp.11-22. ISSN 2448-850X.

This article links the border, as the border of a State, to the idea of an altered State, and place the political at the heart of the psychological and the psychological at the heart of the political. An altered State produces altered conditions in the citizens who have an air of family with the psychotic crisis specially when the delirium is about the power and its violence. The difference between the two experiences (the altered State and the psychotic crisis) is played on two aspects: the relation of these frontiers to discourses and the relation of borders to secrecy.

Keywords : secret; delirium; conspiracy; limit.
