Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This article describes the play activities and educational
process of the Wogeo child from the third to the eighth year. Theory of childhood training
and methods of inculcation, particularly that of the transmission of skill and social norms
are presented systematically. The author indicates that the concept of "conscience" is
absent among the Wogeo, and that in moral training utilitarian values are stressed rather
than ethical precepts.
