The Mind of the Child

Shuttleworth Sally

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines changes in the conception of the child as the bearer of the future in England during the 1890s. This development was highlighted in Alexander Chamberlain's The Child: A Study in the Evolution of Man. This novel portrayed the child as the embodiment both of all past history and an expression of future possibility and the child becomes the key to self-understanding, to a realm of a lost past, and also the guarantee of a more positive future. Similar sentiments can also be found in Stanley Hall's Adolescence.
