This recording is the fourth part of a multi-part episode on Professor David Lancy's book The Anthropology of Childhood.
In this episode, we look at the transition in children's lives into the "age of sense" and the way in which they learn their culture, including questions such as:
- What ways of learning do we see consistently across cultures?
- What differences in attitude to learning do we see between industrialised cultures and pre-state societies?
- How does this vary over the lifespan?
- What role does the family play in children's education in different societies?
Enjoy the episode.
