A New Generation: New Intellectual Opportunities. Commentary.

Human Development, v40 n2 p96-101 Mar-Apr 1997
Earlier generations of developmental psychologists, seeking to make their discipline a normative science, stressed experimental study of children, method over subject matter, and fundamental laws underlying behavior. By contrast, the generation of psychologists after 1970 is inclusive in its research methodology, concerned with the connection between children's development and social conditions, and sensitive to cross-disciplinary approaches.
