Beyond the Icarus Factor

Releasing the Free Spirit of Boys

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The way we raise boys stifles their inborn vitality, daring and creativity rather than fostering it. Beyond the Icarus Factor is a call to rediscover the unique, intrinsic and inalienable free-spirit nature of boys. Richard Hawley explains how parents, educators and community members suppress that free spirit as they strive to turn boys into men who fit a societal template. He argues that such "model men" may appear successful in their role, but may be unhappy in their life. Hawley goes to the roots of Western theology and philosophy to identify what has gone wrong and how these consequences might be addressed.
