To investigate the links between the work of adolescence and the work of the hero, the authors bring together a mythical hero, Heracles and Dostoyevsky’s adolescent hero, Arkadi.
The adolescent who emerges victorious from the trials of the pubertary and engages in the adolescens process, is a hero. This passage implies the coming together of two aporias : parricide/infanticide and mortality/immortality.
