Advice to Clever Children

Advice to Clever Children

Despite the seriousness and profundity of its subject matter, this book is written in Celia Green's usual direct and lapidary style, and with the same astringent humour as The Human Evasion and The Decline and Fall of Science.

More details



In Advice to Clever Children Celia Green develops the philosophical and psychological ideas first outlined in The Human Evasion. Celia Green proposes the theory that human beings are in a state of fundamental hostility to one another, and that this hostility is a form of displaced aggression at the universe, and in particular the finite predicament in which they find themselves. The desire to transcend their own limitations has been repressed, in the interests of avoiding frustration, and is replaced by desire to impose limitations on other people by way of compensation.
