AbstractThis source is a study of the various factors in Manus society affecting the growth and development of an individual from infancy to adulthood. Mead feels that the manner in which a child absorbs the traditions, prohibitions, and values of the adult members of his/her society has great implications for education, not only among the Manus but also in our own society. This thesis, which is develops to considerable extent in Part 2 of this work, has not been indexed for subjects because of its lack of pertinent data on Manus. Those aspects of Manus ethnography discussed in Part 1 of this source pertain to daily routine, early education, family life, the child in relation to the adult world and to the supernatural, the child's world, personality development, Manus attitudes toward sex, the adolescent, and the eventual absorption of the adolescent into adult society.
