About this product
- DescriptionSomething is supposed to happen during the adolescent years - something greater than MTV, video games and the Internet. Joseph Pearce describes this something as the natural mandate for post-biological development - the development of the sexual and spiritual senses and expansion of our growth process outside of our bodies and into the physical world that surrounds us. Drawing on the stages of development outlined by Swiss biologist Jean Piaget and the brain research of neuroscientist Paul Maclean, Pearce demonstrates how nature has built into us an agenda for the intelligent unfolding of our lives. He offers a powerful critique of contemporary child-rearing practices and a groundbreaking alternative to existing perspectives on adolescence. FROM MAGICAL CHILD TO MAGICAL TEEN shows us how understanding nature's astonishing process of development, can unleash our greatest potential, as well as that of our children, so that we may experience our fullness in the manner nature has intended all along.
