    • Abstract:
      For Vicedo, "putting attachment in its place" seems to entail two aspects. Our main point in this reply is that, in excluding the work of attachment researchers after Ainsworth from consideration, Vicedo's work is not yet able to properly "put attachment in its place", in either sense of the phrase. In I The Nature and Nurture of Love i , Vicedo states that 'the scientific evidence in support of attachment theory has been insufficient and is deeply flawed' ([26], p. 238), a position that Vicedo continues to argue in "Putting attachment in its place". Other commentators have similarly observed that Vicedo's criticisms do not strike home because she conflates Bowlby with attachment theory and research, and underplays developments in Bowlby's thinking across time.
