Developmental processes, levels of analysis, and ways of knowing: New perspectives on human development
This volume, with three parts, addresses fundamental issues in the study of human development. Typically, theories of human development are framed in terms of either/ or, mutually exclusive alternatives such as: what is the source of development - nature or nurture? Is development characterized by quantitative or qualitative changes? Is there one universal course of development, or are there many that differ by cultural context or even unique personal and environmental circumstances? Developmental theorists have also struggled with defining the relations between biology, psychology, and social-cultural context, often reducing psychological function of the person either to biological functioning or to conditioning by the sociocultural context. These discussions have also played out in slightly different ways for different areas of human development - whether cognitive, social, or pertaining to language and communicative development.
