Human Growth and Development Theories
The articles in this issue are all based on the invited addresses given by the authors at the biennial meeting of the Society for the Study of Human Development. All of the authors address the unfolding paradigm shift in developmental sciences, from reductionism to relational developmental system theories. The articles address not only theoretical issues, but also methodological advances and their applications.
The Concept of Development in the Study of Individual and Social Change
Annals of Theoretical Psychology pp Cite as. In this chapter we suggest that the major models of developmental psychology may be distinguished in terms of patterns of positions on four dimensions along which the concept of development may be defined. These dimensions include universality, reversibility, qualitative versus quantitative change, and directionality. In exploring the implications of strong versus weak concepts of development to the study of individual and social change, we focus on the dimension of directionality and teleology. Two implications are discussed in some detail: a the extent to which an interaction between the individual and social levels of change is emphasized, and b the position taken regarding the explanatory primacy of the individual or social level of change.

Since the publication of the second edition, developmental systems theories have taken center stage in contemporary developmental science and have provided compelling alternatives to reductionist theoretical accounts having either a nature or nurture emphasis. As a consequence, a developmental systems orientation frames the presentation in this edition.
