Growing Up Absurd analyses the causes & effects of: "the disgrace of the Organised System, of semi-monopolies, government, advertisers etc. & the disaffection of the growing generation".

Goodman asserts that the young really need a more worthwhile world in order to grow up at all, confronting this real need with the world that they've been getting/5(44). “Growing up Absurd by Paul Goodman pretty much founded the modern passion for school reform.” – Paul Berman “Paul Goodman, a man deeply dissatisfied with things as they are, deserves more attention than other less-conscientious book is a highly serious effort to understand the relation between society and the disaffected youngster.” /5(11).

An incredibly entertaining coming-of-age memoir with quite a few insightful tidbits. My only disappointment was wanting to read more about "growing up absurd in suburbia" (the book's subtitle) -- in other words, how others reacted to his weirdness and how he dealt with it -- as opposed to just the "growing up" story itself/5.

The thesis of Growing Up Absurd which the author manages to state in various ways, buttressed by various circumstances, is that there is a disaffection for modern society on.

His book, "Growing Up Absurd," told every high school graduate and fresh-faced frosh in college exactly what they already knew.

High school was and is a waste of time and energy. How much better to just skip it entirely. High school students grew up deformed and degenerated, skipping classes, taunting teachers and each other, not doing homework /5(5).
