Janice, class -- piaget, sense, perception

  • Piaget's stages of cognitive development
    • Development stages applied to theories of race
    • Kohlberg's theory of development
      • Preconventional--punishment, rewards
      • Conventional--other people, law and order
      • Postconventional--morality--social contract, self-chosen principles
        • Levels or development in argument
          • Veitnam war
          • principle vs law 
    • Sensation 
      • The brain creates reality from the information it gets
          • Anglo-Saxon and Nordics as fully developed race
          • African Americans and others, seen as adolescent, in need of guidance and development. A metaphor is an Anglo-Saxon carrying the Olypic torch and everyone else running to catch up.
      • Note: there was some discussion of women as CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. There are 12.
