This best-selling text introduces students to twenty-two theories of development. Comparing and contrasting the theories covered, it focuses on theorists who follow the developmental tradition of Rousseau--theorists such as Gesell, Piaget, and Montessori, who believe we grow largely from our inner maturational promptings and spontaneous discoveries. However, Crain also covers theorists in the environmental/learning tradition. The book concludes with a chapter on how developmental theorists anticipated major themes in contemporary humanistic psychology.From the Back Cover:
