Wire Mothers & Inanimate Arms: Harry Harlow and the Science of Love
- Psychologists know best, of course, and in the 1950s they warned parents about the dangers of too much love. Besides, what was "love" anyway? Just a convenient name for children seeking food and adults seeking sex. It took an outsider scientist to challenge it. When Harry Harlow began his experiments on mother love he was more than just an outside the mainstream, though. He was a deeply unhappy man who knew in his gut the truth about what love -- and its absence -- meant, and set about to prove it. His experiments and results shocked the world, and Wire Mothers & Inanimate Arms will shock you as well.
