The Child in the World of Tomorrow: A Window into the Future.
Doxiadis, Spyros, Ed.
This book is the product of an international symposium on the child in the world of tomorrow which took place in Athens the first week of July 1978. Contributors come from more than 10 scientific disciplines, among them pediatricians, architects and town planners, sociologists, economists, teachers, and politicans. Participants came from all five continents, including many representatives from the Third World. Among the topics explored are: (1) possible social and physical environments of the future; (2) the child and the family; (3) education, including parents' and society's role in education; (4) child health, health care and nutrition; (5) perspectives on the community and home environment of the child; and (6) the relationship of the state to its population of children. This book is a nearly complete record of the symposium; all contributions to the 16 plenary sessions are reported (though some are abbreviated); and all of the papers discussed in the 15 special sessions are referred to, together with the comments of a number of the participants in these sessions. The name and address of all 158 contributors to the book are appended. A list of all papers presented to the special sessions is added to the report of each session, and a book of abstracts of these papers is available from the Institute of Child Health, Athens 617, Greece.
