9780978803711: 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.

About the Author:

About the storytellers: All of Jim Ottaviani's books have been nominated for multiple awards, including Eisners & ALA Popular Paperback of the Year, and they also receive critical praise in publications ranging from The Comics Journal to Physics World to Entertainment Weekly to Discover Magazine, and get national broadcast attention in outlets such as NPR's Morning Edition and the CBS Morning Show. Dylan Meconis was an original contributor to the groundbreaking Flight series and a nominee for the Friends of Lulu Kim Yale award. She is also a launch contributor to Girlamatic, a member of the Pants Press collective and Mercury Studio, and has been blogged just about everywhere.

From Publishers Weekly:

This nonfiction graphic novel retelling psychologist Harry Harlow's famous experiments is as disturbing as it is excellent. We'll show you what love looks like—and what it does, says the young researcher, as he turns to TV to make his case after regular scientists reject his experiments. Harlow showed that rhesus monkeys preferred the soft, cloth stuffed-animal mother over wire surrogates, even when nursed by the wire doll. The famous images of the scary cloth mother and the even scarier wire mother has great cultural weight, but the real drama of the story Ottaviani tells is the contemporary scientists who won't admit the word love into their clinical language. Harlow's journey is tinged with subtle class and immigrant issues—the big-jawed, jowly figures, drawn with meaty shadows, express these divisions wonderfully, and help give Harlow emotional weight as he simultaneously finds success and sinks into alcoholism. The repetition of the term proximity, how scientists explained away love, is chilling, and the largely forgotten Skinner boxes and the theories behind them give the work a sense of deep foreboding as a cautionary tale of how behaviorists once tried to declare affection to be scientifically unsound.
