Cambridge Studies in Cognitive and Perceptual DevelopmentBetween Culture and Biology: Perspectives on Ontogenetic Development0521791200, 9780521791205

Author : Heidi Keller, Ype H. Poortinga, Axel Schlmerich
Description:Breaking away from the traditional nature/nurture dialectic, this study brings together biological, psychological and cultural perspectives on development. It asserts that the biological bases of behavior and cultural context should be approached in an integrated fashion to properly understand ontogenetic development and the constraints and opportunities for development. It also examines influences on developmental theory and the extent to which cultural ideas and practices reflect biological and psychological constraints.
