An informational interpretation of the Aveyron’s Wild Child: L’enfant sauvage (1970)

Hans CONTRERAS-PULACHE et al.

Resumen


On the basis of the film: L’enfant Sauvage (1970) by François Truffaut, we proposed to discuss the following concepts:
humanization and socialization, from the perspective of the Sociobiological Information Theory. And then, we
made an interpretation of the changes that occur in the nervous system of a wild (feral) child at the (belated) inception
of its socialization. In summary, we seek to answer the following questions: I. what is Itard looking for in Víctor:
humanize it or socialize it? And, II. How can the changes that happen to Victor after his encounter with Itard be interpreted
neurologically?
