Présentation de l'éditeur

It's time for the way we think about our families, our schools, and our lives to evolve.

This passionate and provocative critique of the way we raise our children and undermine our society's future delineates the ways in which we thart our creative progess, and reveals a new landscape of possibilities for the next step in human evolution.

Brilliantly synthesizing twenty years of research into human intelligence, Joseph Chilton Pearce -- author of the bestsellers The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child -- show how:

• contemporary childbirth and daycare create a dangerous sense of alienation from the surrounding world
• TV impedes vital neurological development
• synthetic hormones in our foods foster premature sexual development, increasing the likelihood of pregnancy and rape
• premature schooling contributes to potentially explosive frustration and rebellion

These everyday aspects of modern life have a cumulative effect, contributing to violence, child suicide, and deteriorating family and social structures. Proposing crucial yet simple solutions, Pearce persuasively argues that we have the power to get out of our own way and unleash, instead, our "unlimited", awesome, and unknown" human potential as the culmination of three billion years of evolution.

Biographie de l'auteur

Joseph Chilton Pearce speaks to government officials and educators worldwide on human intelligence, creativity, and learning.

Première phrase
"Within that class of people called idiots there is a sub-group that used to be called idiot-geniuses, now called idio-savants, savant being French for ""learned-one"" Both terms are paradoxical since these people have an average I.Q. of 25." Lire la première page

A book for today 24 mars 1999
Par Casca - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Kirkus reviewer of this book has missed the real issues.If he had read carefully he would have seen that Pearce condemns all aspects of modern, man controlled birthing methods, which cause trauma to the baby and prevent deep bonding with the mother, both for blacks and whites.I see no racism in this book.Pearce estimates that 70 percent of white children are uneducable due to the modern developments that he discusses.About two thirds of the population have grown up with these factors that prevent full human development.Most of the people concerned would not be aware of their arrested development.A very disturbing fact that Pearce discusses is the way television prevents the higher brain from developing in children.Television engages only the lower or reptilian brain, not allowing the higher brain to develop.At age 11 the brain destroys many unused neurons, so that arrested development is permanent.This book and "The Sibling Society" by Robert Bly show that very negative things have been happening to human nature in modern society, causing the general breakdown which is going on all around us.

Altered states of Consciousness 21 janvier 1998
Par NK - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Intelligent, thought inspiring, and intense. As a doctoral student with a backgound in physics, I was amazed to find a book on heightened awarness that didn't dishonor Schrodinger's and Einstein's work. This book will blow your mind away.It is free of the platitudes and the stupidity associated with books that unfortunately get lumped in the same catagory as Evolution's End. If you read it you will be floored, and left lusting for what it propounds. Pearce obviously didn't just write this for money, he knew exactly what was going on and probably felt the need to let everyone else in on it. Do not go through life with out reading this, you will miss out on the potential of your own existence! He writes with dizzying acrobatics of intelligence, spun with fact and the pages emanate with the grace and eloquence of a silver tounged linguist; that in and of it's self is enough to warrant reading this...

Evolution's End 12 décembre 1999
Par Pete Sennhauser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It's said: As in the microcosm, so in the macrocosm. In other words, everything is reflected in everything else, and it's true. Of thousands of books, tapes etc. few reflect what ails our society as well, as Pearce's book. We all have a hunch that things are not well with the world. Our waste-products alone will eventually choke us out of existence. Our child-birthing-& rearing practices produce incapable, intellectual idiots, creating yet more imbalance.
Pearce not only describes what's wrong and why. Through his book we gain access to valid changes, enabling us to (hopefully) turn this ill-fated ship around.
(on a personal note: we need to review our value systems badly. These include some of our most prized, yet badly abused bastions like religions and our constitution. When these become excuses for our often ill-fated actions, rather than metaphors to creative solutions, we've become a stagnant species with it's true potential and survival at risk.)

Absolutely amazing 26 octobre 2000
Par Deaken Slade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Never have I read a book that was more purposeful, real, and paradigm challenging than this. Pearce's thoeries of evolution, existence and the potential of humanity are revolutionary and he backs up his points with footnotes on every page. This man has done his research and he is very knowledgable on multiple subjects including science and psychology. I will say that he writes on a highter intellectual level than most, so if you slept through your English classes in school you might want to consider bringing a dictionary along for the ride. Definitely one of the best books I've ever read.

Touches on some interesting topics but goes too far 4 novembre 2004
Par bunnyrabbit4 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book talks about the how the spirit of a child is damaged by the society we've created, both intellectually and physiologically. Unfortunately its takes on too much and ends up seeming like psuedoscience. But there are some very good points being made. It's well worth contemplating.

Take the idea of how hormones in our food affect children. We are led to believe that children reaching puberty when they have barely put down their stuffed toys is due to good nutrition and not hormones in our food! There was a study done of precocious infant sexual development (extremely enlarged genitalia on babies) in Puerto Rico decades ago. It linked the problem to hormones in Chicken. The reason there is so little interest in identifying and solving this problem here (and not even calling it a problem) is not because it doesn't exist but rather because there is no money to be made in proving it ( a very expensive and time consuming procedure). Yes, the victims could sue if they could prove links to cancer or early developmental issues...but the researcher willing to take on the food industry would not be able to pay their bills. And it is easy for the food industry to pay for studies suited to their needs and spoon feed them to the press. This stops the questioning before it starts.

Read this book with a skeptics mind realizing that though you may find some of his ideas far-fetched, there are some valuable truths here...truths you need to know if you have children.
