Product Description


"...offers an excellent historical introduction to the debates and as such deserves a wide readership among biologists and psychologists alike."
--Johan J. Bolhuis, Utrecht University, SCIENCE

"...successfully argues that a synthesis of the two holistic perspectives is necessary in order to understand the nature of human behavior and thereby finally resolve the debate.... Highly recommended..."
--R.B. Stewart Jr., Oakland University, CHOICE

"...this book provides a useful review of the history of thought about the different influences on human development that might well provide the basis for an interesting undergraduate course..."
--Dr. Susan E. F. Chipman, PsycCRITIQUES

Book Description

After a century of debate, the nature-nurture question of human development continues to evade resolution. In The Nature-Nurture Debates, Dale Goldhaber argues that the problem lies not with the answers, but with the question itself. Professor Goldhaber reframes the debate, providing fresh insight into enduring questions concerning human behavior and development.
