9780062507327: Evolution's End

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.

About the Author:

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

From Publishers Weekly:

The author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg claims that schools have collapsed because most American children are neurologically damaged. By age 11, he maintains, the brain loses most of its neural connections, partly due to medical interventions during childbirth, lack of breastfeeding, routine circumcision without anaesthesia and other factors Pearce believes rupture the mother-infant bond and thus inhibit the growth of the child's cortex. He also faults television, which floods the juvenile brian with images at the very time it should be producing images from within; day-care and regimented schooling, which stifle spontaneous play; and synthetic growth hormone residues in meat, poultry and dairy products, which induce premature sexuality in adolescents. To overcome these impediments, Pearce outlines a developmental psychology drawing on the work of Jean Piaget, the novels of Carlos Castaneda, tantric Indian cosmology and quantum physics. Much more rigorous and demanding than his previous books, his controversial tract makes many sweeping claims likely to prompt skepticism. $30,000 ad/promo; author tour.
