Twin studies and family analyses indicate a correlation between having OCD and
having a family member with it. Actual analyses of haplotypes have found some
correlation between specific regions of agene and the likelihood of having OCD.
However, even these recent studies come with qualifications and cautions. Since
genetic research is increasingly finding that complex disorders like OCD cannot
have a single gene or allele responsible for symptoms and behaviors, these ...

A ,/ECAUSE OBSESSION IS REGARDED, at least in psychotherapeutic circles,
as a state of mind in need of melioration, I hesitated before settling on the subtitle
of this book. I'm not sure what to make of the analytical consensus. At the moment
, for instance, I'm riding a train from Florence to Rome, diverted by the agreeable
Tuscan landscape but mildly preoccupied with what the elusive people to whom I
entrusted my luggage five days ago might have done with it. If tomorrow morning

16 Although attachment theorists have not yet ventured into the area of creativity
and cultural studies, their arguments are likely to be more persuasive in the long
run than those of psychiatrists limited by the dogmas of genetic and
neurochemical determinism. Meanwhile promising studies in the
phenomenology and etiology of obsessions in the arts can be found. Three
examples can be mentioned. In On Obsession (1948), Erwin Straus commented
on the eighteenth-century writer ...

There is overwhelming evidence from animal studies that high-fat diets [versus
high-carbohydrate diets] promote weight and fat gain in small animal (rat,
hamster, mouse) models. A positive effect of dietary fat on weight gain has even
been observed when total energy intake was not increased. (p. S38) In other
words, animal studies show that high-fat diets promote weight (and fat) gain,
even when those diets have the same amount of total calories as lower-fat diets.

Supporting the relationship of obsession and depression, Gittelson (1966a,
1966b, 1966c, 1966d) reported that 52 of 398 depressed patients in the studies
showed frank obsessional symptoms prior to the onset of symptoms. Similarly,
Kendell and Discipio (1970) not only confirmed the previously mentioned
findings but also noted that the obsessional symptoms correlated with the depth
of depression. Secondly, what needs to be treated has to be identified and
defined initially.

It is clear, then, that the all-too-familiar “obsession with China,” which has been a
key disposition in the work of Chinese intellectuals in the twentieth century,
remains at work here with undiminished intensity.12 is obsession, which is so
profoundly inscribed in the psychic structure of a wounded Chinese civi-
lizationalism, “privileges China's problems as uniquely Chinese, which lays
absolute claim to the loyalty of Chinese in all parts of the world.”13 According to
Leo Ou-fan Lee, who ...
