This audio recording is of the first part of the second lecture in a five lecture series given at The New School by anthropologist Margaret Mead on the cultural patterning of human development. Mead discusses the influence of childhood upbringing on later development. At 21:27, a film made by Mead is shown of the birth of a baby in New Guinea. The film concludes at 35:37, and Mead discusses the ways in which the film exemplifies cultural patterning of childbirth, and the extent to which cultural expectation and parental influence can determine the development of a child's personality.
