Judith Land, Author
Adoption Detective: Memoir of an Adopted Child
However, his insight-provoking monkey descriptions make up a minimum of the writing in the book, and are just scattered throughout occasionally. Had the whole book been about his monkey experiments it would have been a definite five-star piece - and a classic in psychology writing. But instead Harlow wrote mostly about humans, humans, and more humans, and his insights are often conservative, old-school, boring, conventional, and of his time and place. He is a great proponent of heterosexual, romantic love as the highest ideal, and contrasts this with narcissistic love, never realizing that all-too-often they're the same thing!
(Actually, I came back a few weeks later and have added in this parenthetical, because I have since learned Harlow was ahead of a lot of the psychologists of him time ---- SCARY!!!)
I quickly got tired of Harlow's point of view about humans - and no surprise. When I think about it, why would I want to trust the supposedly brilliant insights on humanity of a guy who can so easily torture innocent little almost-human monkeys?Read more ›
