Theory of generations: how to build understanding

It is well known that values determine human behavior. Most of our values are formed at the age of 12-14 years old. The world is changing rapidly. Historical events, economic crises, social processes, technology development have a significant impact on how our life changes every 15-20 years. Nevertheless, we are surprised that people of various ages often can’t find an understanding and look at the same things in very different ways.

This phenomenon is explained by the theory of generations. According to this theory, every 20 years a new generation of people is formed. These generations have different life perceptions, values, differing views on family building, careers, relaxation, communication with friends and interaction with each other. These and many other interesting issues are considered in this course.

The course is in Ukrainian. It is freely accessible and open to everyone.
