This audio recording is of the second part of the fifth 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 relation between culture and an individual's talents and deficiencies and how they are developed or supressed by cultural values and customs. Mead cites extra-sensory perception and eidetic memory as rare examples of talents that are valued differently by different societies. Mead also discusses the concept of transfer of learning in relation to the learning of new languages and cultures.
