Summary "This book presents an integration of results and an interpretation of recent scientific studies in human psychology from infancy through adolescence. The book seeks to interpret and clarify the relations between biological, emotional, intellectual, and social aspects of development so that students may understand the complex processes by which children and youths become individual personalities with diverse patterns of behavior. The two terms, "development" and "learning," reflect two aspects of psychology which are brought together in the text; for, obviously, development involves learning and learning implies development. That the scientific findings presented may have fuller meaning, attention is given to specific ways in which facts of development and learning fit with and can be utilized for democratic ways of living. Our position is that American educators and psychologists have an obligation to utilize available scientific knowledge for the promotion of a democratic society. It is our position, furthermore, that democratic living is supported by scientific knowledge of development and behavior, and that of all known forms of socio-political organization, the democratic provides the conditions for optimal and maximal development. Thus the understanding of development and learning is broadened, deepened, unified, and motivated by keeping in view the chief purposes of education in a democratic society"--Preface.
