In Over Our Heads - Robert Keegan


Recommended Posts

Another great book I've read this year.


Hmmm, basically he does a good job of demonstrating how what's required to succeed in all the things most care about caring about are over

the heads of the general populace, % wise. He picks up where Piaget left of with the cross culturally dependable levels of meaning making. He breaks down 5 orders of consciousness or meaning making where all higher orders transcend and include

the previous levels. He believes that only 25% IIRC of the USA populace are currently at the 4th order, which is what's required in the modern, W.E.I.R.D countries. Many examples are given, making it a relatively easy read. As you read about the levels.... some may be over you head.


Seems to map onto the world pretty well for me.
