The origins of human nature : evolutionary developmental psychology by David F Bjorklund( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins of human nature offers readers the first book-length attempt to define the field of evolutionary developmental psychology -- the application of the principle of natural selection to explain contemporary human development. The authors point out that an evolutionary -- developmental perspective allows one to view gene -- environment interactions, the significance of individual differences, and the role of behavior and development in evolution in much greater depth. The authors also focus on how an evolutionary perspective can foster a better understanding of human development and how developmental processes may have influenced the course of human evolution. Of particular interest are chapters that explore factors influencing parenting and other aspects of family life; the role of play; and the interacting roles of an extended juvenile period, a big brain, and a complex social structure in human cognitive evolution. The authors present a hybrid approach to evolution and development, pointing out that though underlying assumptions held by evolutionary and developmental psychologists have been at odds, each field has much to offer the other

Why youth is not wasted on the young : immaturity in human development by David F Bjorklund( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Humans take longer to reach maturity than most other species on earth. We are the "Peter Pans of the Animal Kingdom." In this look at the nature of childhood, developmental psychologist David Bjorklund applies more than thirty years of research and writing experience to understanding not only why humans have evolved this way, but what role this period of immaturity plays in the social, emotional, and educational needs of today's children. Challenging common perceptions of children as simply "adults in training, " Why Youth is Not Wasted on the Young urges readers to re-examine childhood through an evolutionary lens, seeing it as an essential stage of development with its own unique purposes, separate from those of adulthood; a time of growth and discovery that should not be rushed."--Jacket
Origins of the social mind : evolutionary psychology and child development( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important volume brings together an array of prominent developmental scientists whose work is explicitly driven by evolutionary concerns. Presenting sophisticated new models for understanding basic questions of nature and nurture, the authors demonstrate how evolutionary knowledge can enhance our understanding of key aspects of social, personality, and cognitive development." "Synthesizing disparate areas of research to provide innovative perspectives on both normal and maladaptive development, this authoritative book will build the knowledge base and fuel further investigation among researchers and students in developmental, social, and evolutionary psychology. It will serve as a uniquely informative text in graduate-level courses."--Jacket
Children's strategies : contemporary views of cognitive development by David F Bjorklund( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the issues central to both classic and contemporary theories of cognitive development is children's goal-directed behavior, which is typically investigated in terms of strategies. This book brings together in one volume the latest research and theory regarding the development of children's strategies for a variety of cognitive tasks. Opening with a history of strategy development research and concluding with a chapter that integrates the diversity of ideas expressed by the contributors, Children's Strategies offers intervening chapters that examine strategy development for attention, analogical reasoning, mathematics, memory, reading, and problem solving in infancy. Although there is much common ground shared by the various contributors to this volume, there is no consensus concerning what exactly a strategy is. This mixture of consensus and disagreement reflects both the explosion of research in this area since the late 1960's and the complexity of the issues involved. It also reflects the fact that this is a topic that is very much alive in cognitive circles, one that will continue to stimulate research for years to come. The papers in this volume describe current research and theory concerning the development of children's strategies for handling a variety of cognitive tasks. After providing a historical view of the concept of strategies in cognitive development, the book highlights many of the issues of concern to contemporary developmental psychologists interested in strategies. The issues discussed include problem solving in infancy, memory, selective attention, mathematics, analogical reasoning, and reading

False-memory creation in children and adults : theory, research, and implications by David F Bjorklund( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an attempt to cut through the undergrowth and get at the truth of the "recovered memory - false-memory creation" puzzle. The contributors - all prominent scholars studying the phenomenon in children or adults - review seminal research and provide the theory and critical interpretation necessary to translate theory into practice. Basic and applied memory researchers, clinical and social psychologists, and other professionals working within the helping and legal professions, will find this book a valuable addition to their libraries."--Jacket

Neem de tijd voor de kindertijd : onvolwassenheid in de ontwikkeling van de mens by David F Bjorklund( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Dutch and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De kindertijd is heel belangrijk voor de de mens. Of zoals auteur David Bjorklund zegt: 'Kinderen moeten de tijd en ruimte hebben om te kunnen spelen, observeren en zomaar een beetje aan te rommelen'. In Neem de tijd voor de kindertijd onderzoekt de auteur de lange periode van lichamelijke, sociale en intellectuele onvolwassenheid die wij 'als soort' doormaken op weg naar volwassenheid. Die weg wordt voor een deel biologisch en voor een deel sociaal-maatschappelijk bepaald. Dit samenspel wordt vanuit een evolutionair perspectief helder uitgewerkt. Hoe hebben veranderingen binnen de samenleving
