Alert 71 : 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 December 12, 2018 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?  Will it help us 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 is Wednesday December 12 at 4 pm NY time live on  You can call in to join the conversation on the air at 888 874 4888.  The radio show archive will be found on
