[Three Models of Adult Development.] Commentary.
Dannefer, Dale
Human Development, v39 n3 p150-52 May-Jun 1996
Agrees with Levenson and Crumpler's critique of ontogenetic theories as overly stressing biological determinism. Disagrees with their proposal, in discussing sociogenic and liberative models, that social influences be confined to a weak determinism. Suggests that a problem for developmental theories is to understand ways of increasing individuals' control of self and social relations. (BC)
