An Interpretation of Part of Gilbert Gottlieb's Legacy: Developmental Systems Theory Contra Developmental Behavior Genetics
Molenaar, Peter C. M.
International Journal of Developmental Science, v9 n1 p5-10 2015
The main theme of this paper concerns the persistent critique of Gilbert Gottlieb on developmental behavior genetics and my reactions to this critique, the latter changing from rejection to complete acceptation. Concise characterizations of developmental behavior genetics, developmental systems theory (to which Gottlieb made essential contributions), ergodic theory (the implications of which underlie my change of opinion), as well as their relevant theoretical relations are given.
