The Fundamental Ends of Life #2
Date:
June 21, 1959
Description:
June 21, 1959 Running time: 2:04 (note: original tape stopped running early). Thurman focuses on the crisis of growth individuals experience as they mature into independent beings with desires to return to a dependent time. Growth and change exist in a tension with dependency and immobility – a refusal to grow and take a step all on one's own. Fear and the comfort of routine often keep individuals from taking that step into full personhood.
