I started a separate blog to follow the history of autism research, with an emphasis on the concepts and reasoning involved. Got as far as Bruno Bettelheim and then got sidetracked into child development. My next post should be on Bernard Rimland’s work.
I was surprised to find that Bowlby’s work on attachment had gained so much traction since my student days. In the course of writing these posts, Bowlby has increased considerably in my estimation. I haven’t been so impressed by the field he founded.
