Ethology and Developmental Psychology

ISBN : 9780745009179
Publisher : Prentice-Hall
Author(s) :
Overview The developmental origins of human behaviour are often seen as having parallels with the natural world of animal behaviour. Researchers in ethology, the biological study of animal behaviour, have amassed a considerable body of research, but the psychological study of child development has often ignored the findings, with the exception of John Bowlby's use of imprinting as a basis for a theory of human attachment. The book evaluates the results of these several decades of ethological work on developmental psychology. It looks at human development from the context of the natural world, thereby re-establishing the links, begun with Charles Darwin, between research on child development and animal behaviour.
