Play Is Not Monkey Business! A Holistic Biocultural Perspective on the Role of Play in Learning.
Dobbert, Marion Lundy
Educational Horizons, v63 n4 p158-63 Sum 1985
Based on observation of children in three cultures, the author concludes that the wild primate model is a fit vehicle for interpreting the play of human children. She then examines the effects and functions of play in order to build a species-specific human theory of play. The implications for education are indicated. (CT)
