The world seen as I, my body versus the rest of the world.
This level represents the development as an individual and questions such as “who am I ?”.
This is immediately followed by the question “what am I worth?”, “what is the value of the world?”, “what is the meaning of life?”.
The age that corresponds to this phase of development is that of the toddler. A toddler learns to distinguish between different things and one of the most important distinctions is the one between ‘I’ and the other person. The field is represented by the parental family.
In this phase the area that is being covered is only small, the body. Anything outside of the body is considered strange, an outsider, a possible danger.
