Overview

Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science, Cognitive Processes / Edition 7

The essential reference for human development theory, updatedand reconceptualized

The Handbook of Child Psychology and DevelopmentalScience, a four-volume reference, is the field-defining work towhich all others are compared. First published in 1946, and now inits Seventh Edition, the Handbook has long been consideredthe definitive guide to the field of developmental science.

Volume 2: Cognitive Processes describes cognitivedevelopment as a relational phenomenon that can be studied only aspart of a larger whole of the person and context relational systemthat sustains it. In this volume, specific domains of cognitivedevelopment are contextualized with respect to biological processesand sociocultural contexts. Furthermore, key themes and issues(e.g., the importance of symbolic systems and social understanding)are threaded across multiple chapters, although every each chapteris focused on a different domain within cognitive development.Thus, both within and across chapters, the complexity andinterconnectivity of cognitive development are wellilluminated.

  • Learn about the inextricable intertwining of perceptualdevelopment, motor development, emotional development, and braindevelopment
  • Understand the complexity of cognitive development withoutmisleading simplification, reducing cognitive development to itsbiological substrates, or viewing it as a passive socializationprocess
  • Discover how each portion of the developmental processcontributes to subsequent cognitive development
  • Examine the multiple processes – such as categorizing,reasoning, thinking, decision making and judgment – thatcomprise cognition

The scholarship within this volume and, as well, across the fourvolumes of this edition, illustrate that developmental science isin the midst of a very exciting period. There is a paradigm shiftthat involves increasingly greater understanding of how todescribe, explain, and optimize the course of human life fordiverse individuals living within diverse contexts. ThisHandbook is the definitive reference for educators,policy-makers, researchers, students, and practitioners in humandevelopment, psychology, sociology, anthropology, andneuroscience.

"There is a palpable sense of excitement from the editors of each volume that this is a critical period in the development of the field. The four volumes are edited by leading scholars in the field, who have carefully selected the volumes' contributing authors for their ability to summarise their topics succinctly, and tease out the issues that are likely to be the focus of research in the coming period. As with previous editions, this new edition of the Handbook will be a lodestar for practitioners and researchers in the field."
