Overview
New approaches to understanding how organisms develop are evolving in the field of developmental psychology. This book brings together for the first time researchers and theorists from three emerging approaches to development: ecological realism, dynamic systems, and epigenetic systems. Within these views, ecological refers to a consideration of the whole organism–environment system, that is, how organisms and environment mutually determine each other throughout development. This eloquent volume will make fascinating reading for researchers and advanced students who are interested in exploring development from an ecological perspective.
