This audio recording is of the first part of the first lecture in a five lecture series given at The New School by anthropologist Margaret Mead on the cultural patterning of human development. New School President John Everett introduces Mead, who begins speaking at 4:49 about the development of human intelligence in different cultures and environments. Mead's proposition is that the range of human capacity is similar in all societies, but culture and environment determine the extent of its development.
