This book covers the history of childhood and adulthood through philosophical texts, literature, rock, tango, films, and The Simpsons, analyzing how we’ve shifted from an obedient and heteronomous childhood to adults interested solely in living their own lives without setting an example for anyone. This book exposes the consequences of this situation in the media, families, and schools: a world in which being an adult is no longer valued and where adulthood tends to disappear.
