Description/Abstract

1TWAS a great honor for me to be invited to give the keynote talk at this symposium honoring Benjamin Spock and celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Baby and Child Care. I am delighted to have this chance to pay homage to a man who has done so much for children and parents everywhere and who has awarded his friendship freely to those fortunate enough to have come into his orbit. Ben Spock the human being is a unique gestalt-that is, his total legacy is more than the sum ofhis clinical care, his writings, his teaching, and his demonstrations. He is one of those rare human beings whose life adds up to more than 100 percent.
