The wild boy of Aveyron by Jean Marc Gaspard Itard( Book )

"The scene of the very human story described in this book was laid in Paris at the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth centuries. In these stirring times there lived at Paris a young medical man, Jean-Marc-Gaspard Itard, born in the provinces, who had early achieved some distinction in his profession and at the age of twenty-five was appointed physician to the new institution for deaf-mutes. In 1799, the year seven by the new calendar, there was published in the Journal des Db?ats a letter by one Citizen Bonaterre, describing a wild boy taken in the woods of the Department of Aveyron. According to reports, the child was a specimen of primitive humanity. He had been found almost unclad, wandering about at the outskirts of the forest in which he had apparently lived for some years, a stranger to human kind, eking out a precarious existence as best he could. The boy was brought to Paris and soon became a nine days' wonder. People of all classes thronged to see him, expecting to find, as Rousseau had told them, a pattern of man as he was: "when wild in woods the noble savage ran." What they did see was a degraded being, human only in shape; a dirty, scarred, inarticulate creature who trotted and grunted like the beasts of the fields, ate with apparent pleasure the most filthy refuse, was apparently incapable of attention or even of elementary perceptions such as heat or cold, and spent his time apathetically rocking himself backwards and forwards like the animals at the zoo. A "mananimal," whose only concern was to eat, sleep, and escape the unwelcome attentions of sightseers. Expert opinion was as usual somewhat derisive of popular attitude and expectations. The great Pinel examined the boy, declaring that his wildness was a fake and that he was an incurable idiot. Among those who saw the child was the young Itard, who, fired with the notion that science, particularly medical science, was all-powerful, and perhaps believing that his older colleague was too conservative in applying his own principle of the curability of mental disease, came to the conclusion that the boy's condition was curable. The apparent subnormality Itard attributed to the fact that the child had lacked that intercourse with other human beings and that general experience which is an essential part of the training of a normal civilized person. This diagnosis Itard was prepared to back by an attempt at treatment, and the boy was consequently placed under the young doctor's care at the institution over which he presided. Of the immediate success of Itard's work there is no question. In place of the hideous creature that was brought to Paris, there was to be seen after two years' instruction an "almost normal child who could not speak," but who lived like a human being; clean, affectionate, even able to read a few words and to understand much that was said to him"--Introduction.

Wir alle kennen sie aus Büchern oder dem Kino: "Wilde Kinder" wie Mogli, den Helden aus Kiplings Dschungelbuch, oder Tarzan, den Herrn des Dschungels. Sie wachsen in einer Welt ohne Menschen auf, gehegt und ernährt von wilden Tieren. Doch was sich nach den Auswüchsen einer blühenden Fantasie anhört, existiert in Wirklichkeit: Von Urzeiten an bis in unsere Tage gibt es Berichte über Kinder, die von Wölfen, Hunden oder Affen aufgezogen wurden - und in der Wildnis überlebten. Schon in der Vergangenheit haben solche Wilden Kinder das Interesse von Forschern geweckt. Denn diese hofften, mit Hilfe der kuriosen Tiermenschen herauszufinden, was uns allen ursprünglich in die Wiege gelegt worden ist. Und was wir uns erst später - beeinflußt durch unsere Umgebung - angeeignet haben

Dramatized account of Dr. Jean-Marc-Gaspard Itard's efforts to civilize a young boy who was discovered living wild in a forest. The boy, named Victor, becomes increasingly divided between his longing for the wilderness and his new life with the doctor. Itard, whose teaching strategies survive today in the Montessori Method, is unsure whether he is helping a savage become human or turning a forest child into a semi-civilized idiot

Nel 1798, in Alvernia, tre cacciatori catturarono un ragazzo cresciuto in solitudine tra i boschi; qualche tempo più tardi il giovane fu condotto a Parigi. I curiosi della capitale si accalcarono al suo arrivo; credevano di incontrare il Buon Selvaggio di Rousseau; videro un essere in preda alle convulsioni, che mordeva e graffiava chiunque gli si avvicinasse e amava giacere in mezzo ai suoi escrementi. Sarebbe finito nel ricovero degli idioti, se un giovane medico, Jean Itard, non avesse ottenuto di tentarne l'educazione. Nel 1801 e nel 1807 Itard scrisse, su questo tentativo, due relazioni, raccolte in questo volume, che sono tra i testi più affascinanti della psicologia e della pedagogia di tutti i tempi. Nella prima relazione, Itard celebra il lavorio della Civiltà che, attraverso nuovi bisogni, crea nuove idee, con un'enfasi che nella seconda si va smorzando e si spegne. Le certezze dell'educatore vengono incrinate dalle resistenze insormontabili che il suo programma educativo incontra, e dall'ostinato rimpianto che il Selvaggio sembra nutrire per i boschi. Sino a che punto la Civiltà è d'aiuto alla felicità individuale? Questa e altre domande non meno radicali sfiorano pagine in cui si riflette la timidezza, e quasi il rossore, di una nuova scienza: quella dell'uomo.(Alice)
