[Full three-tape, three-part set.] Examines the benefits of and importance play in human and animal societies -- in the workplace, education, healthcare, in communities, and family life.
A three-part series about the important benefits of play. Play is a fundamental developmental factor in the lives of humans and other species from birds to primates. Play isn't trivial. It shapes who we are and what we will become. Gaining knowledge of play's deeper meaning allows us to gain greater benefit in our individual, group, and political lives. This series examines play among chimpanzees at an Australian Zoo, Mardi Gras celebrants in New Orleans, cutting-edge companies in Silicon Valley, police officers in the big city, and physicians Patch Adams and Bowen White in El Salvador. .
