    Description

    Paul Shepard presents a dazzling array of profound ideas about the nature of the relationship between early developmental stages and places experienced in a variety of cultures. Shepard's analysis is related to the schema presented in Spivack's (1973) paper, in which he identifies some basic requirements of the human species and the environmental conditions necessary to meet those requirements. Spivack lists human requirements such as eating, mating, and sleeping, along with the essential environmental forms for the activities. These analyses by Shepard and Spivack serve to remind us that Erikson's (1968) stages in the life cycle and the conflicts and crises associated with each stage have not been considered in an environmental context.
