Evolution, Intelligence, and the Future | [Joseph Chilton Pearce]

Evolution, Intelligence, and the Future

The awesome potential of the human brain can only be tapped by providing the best possible learning environment at the earliest possible age. Scientific research has shown that television damages the full neural development of children's brains, crippling their capacity for symbol and metaphor. Pearce envisions a society in which our brains and spirits can develop to their highest potential.

Publisher's Summary

The awesome potential of the human brain can only be tapped by providing the best possible learning environment at the earliest possible age. Scientific research has shown that television damages the full neural development of children's brains, crippling their capacity for symbol and metaphor. Other factors also contribute to antisocial behavior later in life, putting the future of even the most affluent societies at serious risk. "We forget that quality of life, to a child," says Pearce, "has nothing to do with standard of living." He envisions a society in which our brains and spirits can develop to their highest potential. Whether or not you are a parent, this is highly-compelling information relating to our future quality of life and evolution. Pearce is the author many books including Crack in the Cosmic Egg (Simon & Schuster 1971), Magical Child (Bantam 1980), Magical Child Matures (Bantam 1986), Evolution's End: Claiming the Potential of Our Intelligence (HarperSanFrancisco 1992), and most recently The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit (Park Street Press 2004), The Death of Religion and the Rebirth of Spirit: A Return to Intelligence of the Heart (Park Street Press 2007).

    "Folk psychology, and little more"

    Can you handle an argument based around how intelligence and intellect are opposites? Me either. They blame most social problems on the faulty mom/baby bonding perpetuated by hospital births. Yah, Big-Medica is out to get us. They claim that the American child is the most emotionally deprived child in the world. Poor USA. Those tsunami orphans have it so much better.

    Even though they mention academic papers, this interview strikes me as unscientific opinion. Merely folk psychology.
