Reviews

'This book should appeal to a very wide audience. All of us seek to understand one another and in doing so we all draw on a kind of biological insight into what behaviour 'means'. Watching children from another culture and with another language we understand instinctively much of what their behaviour is about. This is a book that draws systematically on watching people and thinking about behaviour in a biological way. It is both thoughtful and fascinating. It is surely a foundation on which others will want to build.'- Ian Sinclair BA (Oxon), PhD (London), OBE, Professor Emeritus, University of YorkCONTENTSPART 1: THE THEORETICAL BACKGROUND OF AN AUTONOMOUS SELF THAT IS IMMERSED IN THE DYNAMICS OF ATTACHMENT AND INTEREST SHARING1.
