From Learning to Love published by Clara 5 years after his death The End Questions Do you think that the treatment of the monkeys is justified by the importance of the information gained? Do you think there was a better way that this information could have been proven?

A proposal has been made to replicate these studies, should it be allowed? How do you think childcare would be different if these studies were never done? If monkeys have taught us anything its that youve got to learn how to love before you learn how to live. References Blum, Deborah. (2002). Love at goon park:
