Alert 77 : Does love or lack of it make us crazy? From ancient history and literature to modern times.

My Guest on the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour on Wednesday January 9, 2019 is Cornell Professor of Classics, Michael Fontaine PhD who is one of my favorite people to talk with on or off the air.  We will explore love and madness in ancient times.  How was love viewed and lived 2,000 or more years ago?  What does classical literature have to teach vs. modern and Christian literature?  How does it explain or view homosexuality?  Will ancient views shed light on modern times?  Does it bolster my new theory linking difficulties with feeling and expressing love to what psychiatry calls “mental disorders?”  The show can be heard live on Wednesday January 9 at 4 pm NY time  on  The radio show archive will be found on   Remember, you can call in to join the conversation on the air at 888 874 4888.  We welcome callers!!!
