Psychological studies of human development
AbstractReviews the book, by Raymond G. Kuhlen and George G. Thompson (Eds.) (1952). This paper-bound volume is a collection of 71 abridged and edited primary source materials in the general area of developmental psychology--here defined as extending from infancy through senescence. The subject matter covered includes physical factors in development, learning, intellectual development, social-cultural conditions, interest patterns, vocational orientation, and personal-emotional adjustment. The papers, originally published between 1928 and 1951, represent not only different research areas, but different methodologies, with the result that the studies selected will be considered of uneven quality by many readers.
