The Case Against Adolescence
This groundbreaking book argues that adolescence is an unnecessary period of life that people are better off without. Robert Epstein, former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, shows that teen turmoil is caused by outmoded systems put in place a century ago which destroyed the continuum between childhood and adulthood.
Where this continuum still exists in other countries, there is no adolescence. Isolated from adults, American teens learn everything they know from their media-dominated peers–“the last people on earth they should be learning from,” says Epstein.
Epstein explains that our teens are highly capable–in some ways more capable than adults–and argues strongly against “infantilizing” young people.
