Prime example of why M.D.s don¿t make good science authors
The inside cover advertises that Willard Gaylin takes us ¿to the very roots of hatred¿ in this book. After reading the book cover to cover, I beg to differ. While Gaylin does an excellent job of elucidating the clinical distinctions between related emotions, such as hatred and anger, and of defining various clinical disorders, such as psychopathology and psychosis, he never does get around to exploring the ¿roots of hatred.¿ In his rush to dismiss it as a psychological disorder, Gaylin offers no scientific explanation for the origin of hatred or why we still struggle with it today as individuals and as a society.Was this review helpful?
