Advayataraka Upanishad 14-18, verse 5
Setting up the essential meaning of the present whole work, as shown on the Web site and related books - Italian and English ones - the display of a personal important standpoint should be consolidated by information evidencing the Author's preferences rising from not mainstream sources of knowledge.
In fact: to can choose a simplified way through a so wide field was necessary to select - and to omit - the presented items by one indicative substantial criterion: so the prospective opted for Authors, Organizations, also situations is to indicate what directly influenced my knowledge and points of view. The authors I indicate - the medicine doctors Montessori and Pikler, the anthropologist Erikson, the teacher Loris Malaguzzi ... - are characterised by their predeliction for the simple, the PRACTICAL, choosing as "Masters" the concrete facts. From this solid base one can arrive at the initial, simple ORIGIN - which in acknowledging can open and develop oneself towards explanations of present but even prospects to future. On other words, in this page, as in the corresponding one in Italian, the criteria on what to include and what to omit do not indicate absolute values. Instead they indicate preferences towards those authors who have in significant ways recorded should regard my own personal experiences in sum up partaking Existentialism and Phenomenology - phenomenology’s definition.A basic criteria on which to start is shared by my own involvment seeing so these guides as an "us" sharing "our" authentic basic knowldge: the preference towards LEARNING against TEACHING, to ACCOMPANY rather than GUIDE, plural even discordant "a posteriori" EXPERIENCES rather than firm, subjective "a priori" IDEAS.
A second but even more particular criteria is the practice of continuous "bottom-up" learning rather than that from a height: the project of accepting whatever evidence that can be validated even if in contrast to accredited schools of thought or individual leaders of movements, even if apparently "absurde".
Besides should be ever pointed out how the humankind has an INNER, genetic very large ground of uniqueness. But the basic inner uniqueness goes together with the absolutely general obliged uniform basis of every body's development: assumptions not to be mistaken as a mere theoretic opinion. being instead a true scientific concrete reality. Therefore a foremost purpose is to straight emphasize its consequent basic reality: the "fourth dimension" of human life, moving from childhood and its obliged passages of development towards present and future eventual evolution(s) and their everlasting presence into memory - either conscious and meaningful, or "removed" into, often damaging, "unconsciousness".
But time and its passages have to be considered not only regarding a merely simple "human life": also facts and their interpretation require ever new consideration; also concepts are forcefully dynamic and then every topic must unremittingly, precisely and timely be enabled by continual basic adds and revision. Then unfortunately it is not adequate to read them exclusively on static books: moreover for the relevance of this lively not theoretic field the related subjects have to be reached and considered often confronting the Web site, before to can eventually read on paper further new edition - they too never resulting totally up-dated. On the matter of fact to read a book is easier than reading long files on-line, but - as already happened for the Italian book from this site Bambini di ieri = adulti di oggi. Adulti di oggi -> adulti di domani - after the book published some data have changed: so needing to ask for a second English book arising from these up-dated pages.
Notwithstanding the "fourth dimension" of the time has not to prevail on the other three ones of space and its properties: at any time they are to be compared together and secured on a wholeness. Just the far-reaching SUBLIMATIONS: Visual Schemes and Scientific Explanation file/chapter is done to complete the above quoted parts, but it introduces also a more general learning: the interactions between corporeal occurrences and their inter-action - into and from - external world, what can define the background of the PSYCHOSOMATIC science. The whole file/chapter Anamnesis? a wy for healing... already introduces a groundwork of founding topics.
But here we must seriously apologize since on the previous edition the display of sources of knowledge was lacking of a "mandatory" subject, of a binding other guide and teacher: the BODY itself together with the perspective on approaches towards its evolutionary further possibilities. This is now quoted also on International links on its totally renewed subchapter ancient-modern, Lacking of them this chapter on the first edition of the book From children of YESTERDAY to adults of TOMORROW, to correct this fault the avoided ROOT should be straightforwardly added here as a new subchapter describing another Guide's presentation with some personally known data regarding bodily health techniques and science issuing either from ancient Eastern or recent Western studies.
A compelling addendum has to implement this crucial topic: every person's uniqueness. Based on the uniqueness of each one's genoma, it loads towards the uniqueness of each one's further personal "fourth dimension" of existence either as from "external" experience or even by Structural Genome Variation - This special issue contains comprehensive overviews of each aspect of this burgeoning area in the study of human genetic variation as well as standards and guidelines for future research.

The whole of the site outlines a long personal research and hard work advantaged by telematics help, which - better than printed papers - offers not only a broad sharing of easily available data, but a nimble exchange of checks, discussions, even debates to partake in and jointly deepen. Any way since these studies are mostly interested in the fundamental (fundamental in its real meaning which settles the foundations, and not only as a turn of phrase) and life-referring subject of personal HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, also it would be wise to cut short with descriptions of the individual partakingthis environment is not unique but scattered in a paramount of pluralities always all also under constant modification. Therefore the wish to widen more open horizons makes the site continually brought up to date, with the aim to reach more differentiated information and checks, to share and exchange with an increasingly wider and various audience: another apology but also a call for the readers only of the book.
Not only to refer a bare lot of generic summarizing books - for example Theories of Childhood: An Introduction to Dewey, Montessori, Erikson, Piaget & Vygotsky by Carol Garhart Mooney - is the aim of this file / chapter. Titles and Authors are addressed to signify more than wide outlines: chosen as GUIDES at the basis of very scientific ROOTS of these studies, chosen as main GUIDES to teach how raising not only authentic infants - competent, confident, curious, attentive, exploring, cooperative, secure, peaceful, focused, self-initiating, resourceful, involved, cheerful, aware, interested and inner-directed (see below: RIE), but on the fourth dimension prospective towards adults of tomorrow also to prepare authentic, self-assured existences for the whole life. (In the mirroring Italian file - and book chapter - ... Basi teoriche... Guide... Organizzazioni... one can find more personal information; other data are on the pages Childhood: times of mutability, Domestic chores: Ergonomy and psychology of a REAL work and on the file/chapter Consciousness and memory - nevertheless all updated after book published). his environment.

But one can learn and take advantage also from doubts and from different methods if not taking part on controversies: or rather, to better open and lighten knowledge and then forthcoming views and related plans, it is furthermore to consider the opposite side of thinking and acting: then it should not be so strange to find in this file/chapter also members of the contrary side. If this file/chapter - as roots - anyhow emphasizes each Authors' points of view regarding how every personhas to be allowed to have - his/her times, possibilities, skills, susceptibilities, ways to recover and resilience to undergo; but also considers - as learning "roots" - the necessity to well know their antithesis on what stated by authors as Delgado, behaviorists, also

The Father of Psychosocial Development
(Photo copyright: Jill Krementz)
On June 15, 1902, Erik Erikson was born in Frankfurt, Germany. He faced his own identity crisis at an early age. He was an artist and a teacher in the late 1920's when he met Anna Freud, an Austrian psychoanalyst. With Anna's encouragement he began to study child psychoanalysis at the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute. He immigrated to the United States in 1933. He taught at Yale University and Harvard University. It was at this point in his life that he became interested in the influence of society and culture on child development. To satisfy his curiosity, he studied groups of American Indian children to help formulate his theories. Studying these children enabled him to correlate personality growth with parental and societal values.
ERIK H. ERIKSON (1902-1994) His first book was published in 1950 entitled Childhood and Society. This book became a classic in the field of psychoanalysis. As his clinical work with children continued he developed the "identity crisis" concept. The identity crisis is an inevitable conflict that accompanies the growth of a sense of identity,His eight stages of psychosocial development are what he is most famous for.
Other books written by Erikson include: Young Man Luther (1958), Insight and Responsibility (1964) and Identity: Youth and Crisis (1968).
Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity (INTEGRITY has moral and religious connotations - peace, health, wholeness, holiness) enough not to fear death. [Erik Erikson, Childhood and Society, Second Edition (New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 1963), p. 269.]
If the cycle, in many ways, turns back on its own beginnings, so that the very old become again like children, the question is whether the return is to a child-like-ness seasoned with wisdom or to a finite childishness. [Erik Erikson, Insight and Responsibility (New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 1964), p. 133.]
Growth and Crises of the Healthy Personality, Identity and the Life Cycle: Selected Papers (Psychological Issues), Vol 1, no 1, (New York: International University Press, 1959), p. 64 ff.]
On Old Age: A Conversation with Joan Erikson at 90 38', color, VHS 1995 A quick review of Joan and Eric Erikson's work and development of the Eight Stages of the Life Cycle, lays the foundation for an enlightening interview with Joan Erikson, aged 90. When the Erikson's created their stages of personality development in the 1950's, they decided the Eighth Stage, Integrity vs. Despair, would result in a feeling of wisdom. Having reached the age of 90, Joan feels compelled to rethink the Eighth Stage, saying she doesn't feel wise.wisdom and integrity are things that other people might see in an old person, but it's not something this old person is feeling
The program focuses on Joan's ideas and thoughts on aging and aging theory. In rethinking the Integrity stage of development, she explains the source of integrity is tact. Her description of looking up the meaning of the word integrity in the Oxford English Dictionary is in itself, an illustration of her own theory of a wise person gaining the resiliency to go on in life. The Eighth Stage is broken down into nine areas confronting the older adult: Wisdom, Integrity, Practical Issues of Old Age, Retirement, Coping, Dementia, Facing Death, The Woven Life Cycle and Resiliency.
The Life Cycle Completed by Erik H. Erikson (Author), Joan M. Erikson (Author) THE TERM AND CONCEPT, "psychosocial," in a psychoanalytic context, is obviously meant to complement the dominant theory of psychosexuality...
Vital Involvement in Old Ageby Erik H. Erikson (Author), Joan M. Erikson (Author), Helen Q. Kivnick (Author)This book consists of joint reflections on old age as the concluding stage of the life cycle, with continual emphasis on the vital involvements necessary...
Unfortunately - as too often happens - "external", abstract thoeries do not harmonize with the more concrete and common place family life: Also for Erikson family and their lives, a requisite for being unbiased is to quote: In The Shadow of Fame: A Memoir by the Daughter of Erik H. Erikson by Sue Erikson Bloland I have been preoccupied for many years with the subject of fame...(more: Analyzing her parents' damaged childhoods, Bloland eventually understands why they were such poor parents, and why they turned to professional success for their fulfillment. Anyone interested in the problems of fame will find Bloland's memoir useful.)

Discovering the body wisdom
There are so many different kinds of bodywork available these days, many people find it hard to choose. Massage therapist and health writer Mirka Knaster's comprehensive book is a good place to start. She covers just about everything in both the Eastern and Western traditions -- from various types of yoga, martial arts, and massage to newer practices such as Rolfing and the Alexander Technique to esoteric movement and touching practices of which most people have never even heard. The one thing all these techniques have in common is that they seek to bring healing and self-discovery through physical practices.
Kundalini - spontaneous - awakening
Living with Kundalini by Gopi Krishna (Author) previously: Kundalini : The Evolutionary Energy in Man by Gopi Krishna
Modern medical science has limited knowledge and experience in this area, and often denies the existence of signs and symptoms of unexpected spontaneous kundalini awakening.The picture of this "disease" is less considered on psychiatry, instead of the analogous Qi Qong psychosis present even in DSM-V.
(Note! if ... one can have some of these symptoms without having a kundalini arousal it is also possible to be alike taken sick since harassed artificially by electromagnetic waves - look on the next paragraph Serious Anthitesis)

On the Consciousness and memory file/chapter there are some important "first hand testimonies", also illustrated by "first hand pictures" and by private photos given on purpose to be shared. But for ascertain better and really this issue it is necessary to go elsewhere: to some dedicated files/chapters of another site and another actual book besides its further new revised editions. There one can find a lot of ever connected links, a lot of bibliography, an International display of Abuses and Abused people, of damaged objects and sick persons witnessing unusual misdoings; of strange illnesses and their doctors; of terrible sufferings - even from tortures - and high lightening RESILIENCE and consciousness: all this the most possible shared as first hand experience, the less as bibliographic data - so often at risk to be disputed as FAKE.
Against MEMORY and CONSCIOUSNESS a powerful, flattering enemy arises.
Against CHILDHOOD and its worthy ethics, value and developmental inception even worse opposition assails.
Sleeping reason breeds monsters and monsters?
Then it is compelling to WATCH, to WATCH. to WATCH. Ever should be rejected not documented mere asserptions together with not enough probed even oneself's own feelings. DOUBTS for sustaining to MIND and WIDE RANGE AWARENESS must be ever the foremost GUIDES.
One can be wary of how to explain concepts to people not competent to understand or - worse - to talk with whom believes to know when instead misleads only bare words. At the same time nonetheless one can well learn by controversies, by to mock inconsistent theories, or - even and perhaps moreover - by critically consider obtuse or adverse statements. The file/chapter Etiology &Treatment of childhood endorses a mild example of a mocking reverse of preferred Authors' opinions: it claims in a fun solemn style against "childhood" as a "no-value", against the possibility of FREE and necessary developmental phases. But this subject shares a very wide, noxious and NOT occasional, innocent jock. It exemplifies a broadly shared way not only to think and theoretically discuss: it shows moreover a wide struggling position openly AGAINST childishness considered not as it is instead as a faulty adulthood
A furious controversy raged for many years regarding divergent ways of thinking on regard of children rearing. From the field lined up in favor of apparently traditional families - but really from families resulted deprived of any maternal instinct - fired a furious campaign to prosecute care-givers advocating mismanaged children.
Such a furious controversy raged also personally against "Masters" as Bettelheim: trying to "destroy" professions, reputations even lives. It raged with a particular fury and success against Bruno Bettelheim, as against Authors who survived from the worse misfortunes and abuses and who, on reverse, could have had the bravery - and the unfortunately only temporary luck - to describe and publish with success their redoubled suffering. (Look for more info at the file/chapter of another site/book Testimonianze e dubbi, partly in Italian but also partly in English).
Rising to the Light: A Portrait of Bruno Bettelheim by Theron Raines (Author)
In 1983, after years of trying to persuade Bruno Bettelheim to write his autobiography, Theron Raines, his friend and literary agent, himself undertook to tell the life of the renowned but often controversial child psychologist. With no thought of writing a conventional biography, Raines began a series of interviews in which Bettelheim reflected at length upon the major moments â€” triumphs, crises, and tragedies â€” of his extraordinary life. Rising to the Light is the fascinating synthesis of these encounters and of Rainesâ€™s interviews with counselors, teachers, and former students from the world-famous Orthogenic School.
[And from Wikipedia links: Orthogenic School formerly run by Bruno Bettelheim, a well-known and controversial psychoanalyst. The school is approximately 85 years old and has resided at its current location since the 1940s. ld and renovations to modernize the building have been begun and are still under way. Bruno Bettelheim accepted Woody Allen's invitation to appear as himself in the film Zelig (1983)]
Not for according any value to
for objectivity: in effect the book shown below has to be
with wariness. At the matter of fact Bruno Bettelheim's
enthusiastic naivety -
on too much one sided experience and simplified believing, too often
side directed against family's deceitfulness - focused some times
and writings in wrong directions, towards wrong previsions, fore
very wrong results, as in the analysis depicted in these writings:
Children: Our Ultimate Investment
Philosophy of Children: Our Ultimate Investment
Love Before The Beginning
A nonprofit foundation dedicated to the nurturing of the possible human. Our mission is that every child is loved, respected and prepared before conception.
Talking on regard of such matters, an interlocutor gave us a good opportunity to undermine a possible operational - and then seriously misleading - misunderstanding. On reading emotively the texts on the files/chapters Imbroglio èil contrario di sviluppo, Delgado & Skinner, Totem and Taboo revisited: awful and fertile rise of new superstitions etc. he took - wrongly - to mean that a precise evil will and purposes are effectively acting to damage the normal children's development and rearing.
Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity said Erikson, but UNFORTUNATELY - I repeat: unfortunately - the widespread share of faulty ways to rear children doesn't usually pertain to a deliberate active program: unfortunately since an open enemy could be fought on a parallel, adverse open "battle-field". The worldwide parental behavior mirrors instead a NORMAL Gauss's curve: at the extremes are - here - the "very good" ones with their good Masters and - there - the wicked ones triggered by evil Masters - as Delgado and his cronies. But instead actually in the large middle of the curve there is a bulk of passive lay-people: selfish, idle, superstitious, adults not really grown, bad lived infancies, lacking or removing founding experiences: to summarize: lacking of every bit of INTEGRITY and then castrated of parental instinct. (For direct data regarding Delgado in person look at the video Estimulacion electrica cerebral en toros (J. Delgado 1964) and read another interview: Psychocivilization and its discontents)

As every other file of this site, the review of links is continually checked
To read and link a well organized directory of the files/chapters go to the file Book index indexing as Web site as book From children of YESTERDAY to adults of TOMORROW. People had to lament hindrances on looking through this site, and asked to be better orientated. To favor this need the site's map changed: as first sight one can begin from a simplified page opening wide the whole indexed files, both the Italian and the English and plurilingual ones.A suggestion:
After the dedicated file/chapter, factually prefacing the English pages also for site and book, the file/chapter ... from today's adults -> to adults of Tomorrow... should be considered a keen introduction to and beginning of the whole site: or better it sets up the essential meaning of the whole work - personal researches, site and books. Any way this meaning can be furthermore proved on the files/chapters more in depth evidencing Author's personal Introduction, completed by this one, which more widely consolidates teaching references, and by Opinion, fact, complaint to reinforce the whole message explaining the applied method to face comments and controversies.
But just after book published, further considerations suggested to better and more precisely complete these crucial files: so much amplified to occasion a latest - strengthen and more accurate - edition to support the previous one. The launching file/chapter ... from today's adults -> to adults of Tomorrow... needs notwithstanding to be followed by topics more in depth evidencing the Author's personal introductory data, also on their continual development: so by files/chapters renewed with improved notices and also with reults of better settled discussions. Therefore to support them has to be utterly considered the most controversial files, to begin from an open to question file, absent in the Italian book: TOTEM AND TABOO REVISITED: awful and fertile rise of new SUPERSTITIONS (but present - as chapter 26 - in another site/book It's Abuse NOT Science fiction) indirectly mirroring and completing an otherwise only Italian, also controversial, essential file/chapter Imbroglio è il contrario di sviluppo [= To embroil/coil reflects to involve: is it the contrary of to develop? At a good side: only wrapped buds can thrive; but also to uncoil embroiled matters can assist development once restored past, since - at a bad side - a synonym of involved is embroil/mislead meaning also FRAUD.] recently modified and improved. Even more bitter controversial is the file/chapter presented in both languages: Opinioni, fatti, accuse / Opinion, fact, complaint to specify real design and aims for refuting any risk of misunderstanding. This purpose is also more enabled by the basical adds and conceptual revision - not only stylistic changes - to be reached and considered on the files Consciousness and memory and on Anamnesis? A way for healing... and validated by the sociological approach of the "guest file" What is "Emotional Labor"?
