Roderic Gorney, MD, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry-psychoanalyst, and a published author.
He wishes to disseminate, extend, and implement the life work of internationally revered anthropologist, Ashley Montagu, whom Dr. Gorney was a close associate for many years. The core of Montagu’s contribution is the transfiguration of the concept of love from that of an emotion, passion, or sentiment to that of an action.
In his extensive writings love is understood as a deed, one that enhances the survival prospects and fulfillment of the beloved.
In addition to writing books, Dr. Gorney has researched, lectured, teached, and published on numerous professional topics, nationally and internationally.
The role of touch in adult life.
All babies are born with an urgent need for touch in order to be healthy. As children grow into adults, the intensity of the need for touch gradually decreases, but it never disappears.
This pilot study is to learn useful facts about touch in daily life among adults living in various countries and widely different cities.
He expects that results will provide useful guidance for hypothesis-generation and further research on this vital factor in both maintenance of health and treatment of disease.
