Jean Piaget on Developmental Psychology by Jordan Peterson
We will be discussing Jordan Peterson’s video on Jean Piaget. In this lecture, Jordan Peterson talks about the great developmental psychologist Jean Piaget, who was interested, above all, in the way that knowledge is generated and transforms. His analysis of the development of morality in children, which relates early play to social cooperation and competition, is particularly profound.

Change, Courage, Education, Emotion, Evolution, Habit, Hapiness, History, Honor, Language, Love, Imagination, Mind, Reasoning, Science, Time, Virtue and Wisdom are some of the Great Ideas discussed so far based on cumulative 1000+ live votes of thoughtful conversationalists that participated in the conversations so far. See exciting ideas coming up for discussion below.

These Meetups take place on Every Saturday from 3pm to 4:30pm at Sony Atrium at 550 Madison Avenue at 55th Street-- 20 to 40 thoughtful conversationalists participate in each meeting.

No prior reading is necessary. Simply bring your life experience, and share your thoughts with others, hear their ideas, and engage in a thoughtful and courteous conversation--which is organized to maximize exchange of ideas. Feel free to arrive late or leave early.

The Great Books Project identified The 103 Great Ideas that thinkers from every field--philosophers, scientists, novelists, psychologists, economists--have written about in what they poetically call The Great Conversation. This Meetup uses their work as an inspiration to organize live conversations on the same great ideas among New Yorkers today.
