The next period of human history is expected to be turbulent, unstable, and uncertain with high anxiety, high creativity, and radical change. Discuss Dr OHaras lecture. In this discussion, consider the following questions:
- As the world becomes ever more interconnected and populations ever more mobile, what should we expect to happen to the current cultural differences that have been discussed in this course?
- Can we expect a global mind? Is so, why? If not why not? Would that be a good thing? Or not?
- What psychological and cultural capacities do you think will be necessary to adapt to a global culture?
