Overview

This book is the outcome of a symposium where leading researchers, mainly in developmental psychology, came together to discuss the implications of the emerging developmental science and the holistic approach. In doing this, the authors wanted to honor a distinguished colleague, David Magnusson, and his career-long contributions to this field. The purpose of the book is to discuss the profound implications for developmental science of the holistic paradigm, especially with regard to the individual development within psychology. Against the background of their own empirical, theoretical, or methodological research, the authors have tried to identify what is needed for the developmental theory and methods within this paradigm and discuss possibilities and limitations in relation to conventional approaches.

Booknews
Researchers, primarily in developmental psychology, present 26 contributions discussing the profound implications for developmental science of the holistic-interactional paradigm, especially with regard to the study of individual development within psychology. The first section, addressing theoretical considerations, includes a piece by David Magnusson, an early advocate of the holistic-interactional perspective. Subsequent sections address methodological considerations, biological perspectives, personality, and developmental paths of adjustment. The last section summarizes the volume and discusses prospects for developmental science and the holistic paradigm. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
