[Xmca-l] Re: Integral development of children

Hi Ulvi,

I suspect that in some contexts 'integral' has been displaced by 'holistic' though this doesn't seem to refer to quite the same intention.

All the best,

Subject: [Xmca-l] Integral development of children

I searched this , "integral development of children" and what brought to me was some results from Ukraine, Cuba, Bolivia, UNICEF.

What is the matter? I think it is a very valuable thought since ancient times on the development of man , then during Renaissance and it should have a central place in 20th century human and child development in particular.

Is it thrown away and marginalized from the theory, thoughts and teaching on the development of children, in the developed West?

Does not it have a central place on the development of children in US and in Europe today? Was it rather emphasized by socialist circles in the West, in Third World and socialist countries and now marginalized within the mainstream?



P.S. By this, I do not mean something like integrated education, maths via music etc. I mean directly integral development of man and the thinking on this in the field of child development.
