Piaget explains his involvement with the psychoanalytic movement; he shares the story of how he met Dr. Sigmund Freud at the 1922 Congress of Psychoanalysis in Berlin, Germany. He explains his view of the unconscious is that it is anything not conceptualized; the interviewer asks Piaget about his opinion on psychosexual development.
Piaget is asked about a controversial head start program experiment which was conducted and written by Dr. Arthur Jensen; he asserts a person's intelligence cannot be understood through genetics or surveying a single aspect of their mental structure. When asked about his contributions to psychology as a whole to determine his greatest work, Piaget explains his experiments are born out of unexpected, unanticipated situations, so he does not plan them.
Inhelder, a traditionalist within her experimental design, replies to the interviewer's question about how Piaget's research would be adapted in America and if a different experimental approach would be necessary. Piaget is asked why he does not consider his study of moral development to be his most significant work.
Piaget talks about how his relationships with people like Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer impacted his life and changed the trajectory of his psychology research. Inhelder tries to clarify that Piaget is not a reductionist like some seem to believe. Piaget does not think he can plan the future of his career; he uses a metaphor of object permanence within child development to explain why.
