A pretty interesting book, but not what I expected It s very focused on Attachment behaviour in animals, but when the author talks about human babies, is not very focused in the problems caused by bad Attachment behaviour And I have to recognize that the book is a bit boring An insightful examination of the beginnings of childhood Attachment theories.
This book begins as quite dry but once Bowlby begins talking about actual Attachment it s very interesting The preceding chapters I d guess over half the book are focused on biology and evolutionary components that are interesting, but hard to apply directly to clinical work It appears to me at least that in his writing Bowlby attempts to find a common ground between psychoanalysis object relations and drive theory mainly and abehavioral output He does however argue against behaviorism writ in stone, as stating that this is about external situations, whereas Attachment and analysis are about internal experiences.
I read both Volumes 1 and 2 I would probably rate this as 3.
75 stars It is not easy reading but it s fascinating This book is groundbreaking not just because of the introduction to Attachment theory but also due to his observational methodology which was a new method in psychological research.
