Summary
  • "This book grew out of the need for a text that would cover the entire age span from conception to old age, devoting about the same amount of space to each period of life. In the past decade, interest has grown in psychological and physiological studies of maturity and old age. Research in this area has been vigorous. We have attempted to bring this material--still scattered throughout various journals--into line with the more extensive body of knowledge on behavioral development during childhood and adolescence and in this way to provide a continuous picture of human development and subsequent decline. For the sake of clarity we have used a longitudinal approach consistently, tracing an aspect of behavior from its genesis in the prenatal or early postnatal stages through adulthood to old age. Since we believe that no thorough understanding of human development can be achieved without a regard for phylogenetic changes as we ascend the scale from the lowest invertebrates to man, we have begun most chapters with a brief description of the phylogenetic aspects of sensory processes, learning, emotions, etc., following this with ontogenetic changes in the various behavioral areas
  • The experimental literature on psychological development during childhood and adolescence is extensive, and several excellent texts are already available for these periods. We have therefore been highly selective in our treatment of early life, choosing only the more important studies, especially those which give a clear picture of behavior at the various age levels. This principle of selection is particularly evident in chapters dealing with motor processes, language, and intelligence, as well as emotional, social, and personality development. Our treatment of the literature covering maturity and old age, on the other hand, is more exhaustive, since many of these studies have not yet been included in any textbook. Overall, the general orientation of this book is physiological"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
