Niki Harré: Psychology and the Infinite Game

Niki Harré is an associate professor at the University of Auckland where she teaches social and community psychology. In this talk Niki suggests that we need to reconnect with the metaphorical insights that myths and symbols can provide. By doing so, we will better understand the psychological struggles of our time and be able to work more effectively with others towards positive social change.

I really enjoyed listening to this talk.  The philosophy of moving away from the scarcity mentality of the finite game and moving towards the joyful and inspiring values of the infinite game is something that is very compelling and persuasive.  Hope you enjoy it too...
