Erikson, Erik

Erikson, Erik
(b. 1902)
   American psychoanalyst. Erikson was born in Frankfurt-am-Main and was educated at the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute and at Harvard University. Subsequently he taught at Yale, the University of California, the University of Pittsburgh, M.I.T. and at Harvard. Erikson, together with Piaget, is one of the best-known developmental theorists of the 20th century. He argues that the human life cycle consists of eight major stages and his discussions of adolescence in particular have been hugely influential. Besides his clinical observations, he stresses the moral obligations of adults to provide a suitable environment in which the young can reach their full potential. His work is immensely readable and, although he has been accused of being more impressionistic than scientific, he has established himself as an important guru of the psychoanalytic community.
   His publications include Childhood and Society (1950), Identity, Youth and Crisis (1968), Gandhi’s Truth: On the Origins of Militant Non-Violence (1969), Dimensions of a New Identity (1974) and Adulthood (1978). His many awards include the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
