An excellent seminal piece on human development
Erikson's Childhood and Development is a must have book for those who plan to enter into the field of human psychology or child development. This book was purchased for my daughter who is finishing her second year of a PhD program in psychology. Erikson's themes and concepts are truly inspiring and enlightening.Was this review helpful?

A brilliant Freudian revision
This work is one of the foundation works in modern psychological thought. Eriksson presents an analysis of the basic conflicts involved at each stage of human development. In the process he focuses on what has become a cliche of our culture, the identity- crisis characteristic of human adolescence. In later works he would study Luther and Gandhi and connect their historical innovations with their psychological development. This present work is Eriksson's most systematic and basic. Required reading not only for students of psychology but for those in intellectual history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
