The line between what we know and what we don't know is not as sharp as we would like to believe. Did Madoff's bankers know about his Ponzi scheme, as he insists they had to? Did they not know? Or did they not know that they knew it?
You may find this a strange question but as a psychoanalyst, I have learned to appreciate of how the mind discards unwanted facts.
