Press Play to Grow! Designing Video Games as Trojan Horses for Catalyzing Human Development

Moses Silbiger


This paper explores new and alternative video game designs to promote overall and healthy human development based on specific methodological frameworks related to the emergent fields of Integral Psychology and "Post-Piagetian" Developmental Psychology. In order to better investigate these aspects, a brief introduction of developmental concepts including Integral Psychology, Integral Life Practice (cross-disciplinary developmental training), and Integral Play Theory (which links human development & play) is also presented.
