This chapter discusses the separation of animals from contact and care, and suggests the primacy and independence of the need for touch. In a discussion of Harry Harlow’s experiments on separation, the author excoriates researchers of contact deprivation for neglecting the change they introduce when they separate dependent animals from their dominant figure.

Keywords:   touch, necessity of contact, Harry Harlow, experimental cruelty, assumptions of objectivity
