Hi Friends,

Recently I very much enjoyed a presentation that was titled “Is vertical stage development real, BS, both, or neither?” by Daniel Görtz, PhD. As the host of the Polarity Lab at Integral Life, many of you already know, I’m a firm believer of the value of taking both-and-more smarter perspectives (and actually attempting to practice that!).

Developmental stages (in the non-tangible subjective and intersubjective domains) have often been viewed as a contentious issue for many…as they probably should be. For many, stages are also a very useful meta-meaning-making tool that, if explored wisely, heightens awareness and compassion. It is also interesting to ponder on whether opinions about stages are themselves “developmentally” arising – for better or worse. Daniel will help us soften some of the harder edges around this topic of developmental stages, while also helping us firm-up some of the sloppier, loose-ends.

Daniel Görtz, PhD is a political philosopher, sociologist and author. He is a leader of “the Nordic school” of metamodernism. Along with Emil Ejner Friis, Daniel has a major influence on the works written by Hanzi Freinacht (The Listening Society, Nordic Ideology).

Hope to see you March 3rd, 5pm CET / 9am MST.
