Attachment and Loss, Volume 1: Attachment
Volume 1 of the series, Attachment and Loss, is devoted to an analysis of the nature of the child’s tie to his mother. An examination of instinctive behaviour leads to a theoretical formulation of attachment behaviour – how it develops, how it is maintained, and what function it fulfills.
In this classic work of psychology, John Bowlby examines the processes that take place in attachment and separation and shows how experimental studies of children provide us with a recognizable behaviour pattern which is confirmed by discoveries in the biological sciences. He makes clear that human attachment is an instinctive response to the need for protection against predators, and one as important for survival as nutrition and reproduction.
