"Spiral Dynamics" by Michael Grady. I.S.E.

Thursday, March 21
Independent Scholars Evenings.
" Spiral Dynamics."
By Michael Grady.

Spiral Dynamics is a theory of human development introduced in the 1996 book Spiral Dynamics by Don Beck and Chris Cowan. The book was based on the theory of psychology professor Clare W. Graves.


Spiral Dynamics argues that human nature is not fixed: humans are able, when forced by life conditions, to adapt to their environment by constructing new, more complex, conceptual models of the world that allow them to handle the new problems.Each new model transcends and includes all previous models. According to Beck and Cowan, these conceptual models are organized around so-called Memes:
systems of core values or collective intelligences, applicable to both individuals and entire cultures.

Independent Scholar Michael Grady will describe how he has interpreted the Spiral in his own life development, while inviting co-learners to share their own viewpoints.
