Horizons: On Valuing Perspectives

A book based my interview with pastry chef, David Brown. It speaks of his life, travels, and experiences. The book uses text transcribed from this interview with text from psychologist Erik Erikson’s studies on human psycho-social stages of life. In this book I compare moments in David Brown’s life to the developmental stages in Erikson’s writing. The book is called Horizons: On Valuing Perspectives, because the definition for horizon describes both a literal horizon line between the ocean and the sky, and it is also defined as “the limit of a person’s mental perception, experience, or interest.” During the interview David speaks about the changes a person endures during their lifetime, how experiences influence change, and the importance of change. Throughout the book, motifs of maps and navigation are used in reference to David’s travels.
