Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This 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.
