Throughout Bigelow's young life he has been particularly puzzled at the tendency of scientists to ignore interpersonal relations as a worthy topic in its own right, particularly when the quality of our very lives is dictated as much or even perhaps more by the qualities of their personal relationships than by any other single consideration. From Cain and Abel to Helen of Troy, interpersonal conflict and passion have had the power to change the course of history.
Bigelow's writing process has developed into a deeply driven thing which comes into its own when the author has time for real solitude. He likes to listen to the birds in spring, and then his pen simply scripts a vividly visual blueprint of what he needs to say.
Quotations: "Essentially, I find a sense of wonder in seeking and discovering that there is indeed an order in nature and that this order also exists in the world of human social behavior. I was especially intrigued by Piaget’s The Moral Judgement of the Child (1932) at a time when most of my instructors and colleagues were unabashedly behavioral. At the outset, though, I had a firm conviction that the word ‘behavior’ meant something quite different when applied to people as the meaning of events in their lives defined essentially what is human."
Bigelow is a member of the Ontario and Canadian Psychological Associations, as well as the American Psychological Association.
