Details

Robert Kegan is a psychologist who teaches, researches, writes, and consults about adult development, adult learning, and professional development. His work explores the possibility and necessity of ongoing psychological transformation in adulthood. He is perhaps most well known as the author of The Evolving Self, In Over Our Heads: The Mental Demands of Modern Life, and An Everyone Culture. 


In this conversation we talk about:


What is a good definition of an 'adult'?


The phasic vision of adult development


The variety of developmental logics in the human mind


A tour of the 5 stages of adult development


What people get wrong about his 5 Stage model of human development


Why you are almost certainly not ‘Stage 5’ if you're under the age of 40


The gap between philosophical understanding and developmental attainments


Why you might take on a Stage 5 philosophical orientation from the Stage 4 developmental level (and what that might look like)


The most important developmental stage transition for the majority of humans


What transcending the limits of the socialized mind means for our planetary culture
