Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XXXIX, 1958: The Nature of the Child's Tie to His Mother. John Bowlby. Pp. 350-373.

Bowlby reviews the nature and dynamics of the first object relationship. Of the theories that have been brought forward he favors two: an innate need to be in touch with and cling to the mother, and a need to relate to the breast, to suck, and to possess it orally. There is evidence that the child has a need to be smiled at, picked up, and talked to. Bowlby presents evidence that sucking, clinging, following, crying, and smiling are instinctual motor responses equivalent to the instinctual responses described by ethologists. Observations of human beings and experiments on the higher primates suggest that clinging is independent of oral behavior. The infant's cry is due not only to hunger but also to other releasing stimuli. These instinctual patterns are evoked or suppressed under certain conditions. Clinging is already present at birth and is expressed with great tenacity especially in a setting of separation or at bedtime. It is manifest also in relation to transitional objects.
