2013/12/12 Elder Play (w/ Dr. Peter Gray)

Dr. Peter Gray joins us to discuss the way play instinctively accompanies development in all mammals. While Dr. Gray's work focuses upon chilhood development, he is an evolutionary psychologist who has looked deeply at hunter-gatherer societies for clues about how play serves personal development and cultural transmission. His book Free to Learn has just come out and he is currently engaged in getting us to look again at the role of play in development and  learning.
