Both melancholia and mourning are triggered by the same thing, that is, by loss. The distinction often made is that mourning occurs after the death of a loved one while in melancholia the object of love does not qualify as irretrievably lost. Contributors: Carlos Mario Aslan, Martin Bergmann, Roosevelt M. S. Cassorla, Florence Guignard, Maria Cristina Melgar, Thomas H. Ogden, Maria Lucila Pelento, Jean-Michel Quinodoz, Priscilla Roth, Vamik D. Volkan
